RFB ("remote framebuffer") is a simple protocol for remote access to
graphical user interfaces that allows a client to view and control a
window system on another computer.  Because it works at the
framebuffer level, RFB is applicable to all windowing systems and
applications.  This document describes the protocol used to
communicate between an RFB client and RFB server.  RFB is the
protocol used in VNC.  This document is not an Internet Standards 
Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.
