Run vncserver on the server, and vncviewer server-ip:number on the client side.
You can have multiple desktops if your .vnc loads a window manager like KDE or XFCE instead of the more basic TWM.
You can have multiple X sessions by simply running more vncservers and connecting to them from the client.
