	Buona sera! So long as you have enable VNC support in the RDP setup  
on the server. Basically you need to set the VNC password and check  
the appropriate box. You should be able to access it from there. Also  
ensure that you have all of the standard ARD ports open on the  
firewall or you will not be able to connect. Once you do then any VNC  
client should be able to connect.

	ARD requires:
	5900 tcp + udp
	3283 tcp + udp
	5988 tcp

	For VNC you should probably add 5800 tcp + udp as well.
