VNC is a way to share a graphical desktop environment. Atmosphere's Remote Desktop

You can connect to an image you own using Atmosphere's Web Desktop. Web Desktop uses a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) viewer that allows one or many Atmosphere users to access the owner of an image that is being run on CyVerse resources to connect from their local machines in a graphical desktop environment on their local machines. The underlying protocol works across operating systems and platforms, and allows remote users to access, use, and share a computer system. There are many free VNC clients or viewers, some of which are mentioned in this section.

VNC Viewer is not compatible with the Chrome browser on Mac OS X (though not in Windows or Linux) due to compatibility issues between Chrome and Java. If you experience Java errors and failure to launch, use the Safari or Firefox browsers or download the standalone VNC viewer from RealVNC.
