VNC vs X manager


Hi, can some one tell me the deference between VNC and X server, its rather confusing. The way I understand just tools to connect to your GUI remotely right

I have used VNC this is easy to setup and to use

Thanks

Regards

XDMCP (X server), is native way linux servers connect to each other. On theory vnc is more slow. On the other hand, there is planty open source vnc clients for windows, but not so many X clients.
