Is there a VNC viewer that works to and from a headless server and a headless client?

DisgruntledUser asked:

I want a really simple VNC viewer that runs on a headless machine and connects to a headless machine, like a simple command line application, similar to the OpenSSH client.

I have looked online and in the Ubuntu and Debian repos but everything is geared towards opening up an X11 client. I see no reason for that as I am not connecting to an X11 display but only to a console based login.

My answer:


You’re using a virtual server. You’re limited to the remote console access provided by the service provider; contact them for details on how to use it.
