Vino is the default VNC server in Ubuntu to share your existing desktop with other users. If you are using Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron), you will probably need to install another server because of a known bug that stops Vino working for most people.
To configure vino from within GNOME, go to System > Preferences > Remote Desktop
To set vino to request access each time, tick Allow other users to view your destkop in the Remote Desktop configuration window
* There's no way to set vino to only listen for the next connection
To set a password, tick Require the user to enter this password:, and enter a hard-to-guess password
To put vino in view-only mode, untick Allow other users to control your desktop
To only allow local connections, click on the tab marked Advanced, then tick Only allow local connections.
