My Windows XP Professional EULA (which I never assented to because it was
installed on machine when I got it and only my cat ever hit the OK button.
Sue him). It seems to indicate there is no problem with VNC as long as only
one user at a time is accessing the machine remotely. For a workstation that
is a reasonable restriction.

2. DESCRIPTION OF OTHER RIGHTS AND
LIMITATIONS.
* NetMeeting/Remote Assistance/Remote Desktop Features.  The
SOFTWARE contains Remote Desktop, Remote Assistance, and
NetMeeting technologies that enable the Product or
applications installed on the COMPUTER (sometimes referred to
as a host device) to be accessed remotely from other Devices.
You may use the SOFTWARE's Remote Desktop feature (or other
software which provides similar functionality for a similar
purpose) to permit any Device to use, access, display or run
the SOFTWARE without acquiring a license for the SOFTWARE on
that Device, provided only one user uses, accesses, displays,
or runs the SOFTWARE at any one time.  When you are using
Remote Assistance or NetMeeting (or other software which
provides similar functionality for a similar purpose) you may
share your session with other users without any limit on the
number of Device connections and without acquiring additional

applications, you should consult the license agreement
accompanying the applicable product or contact the applicable
licensor to determine whether use of the product with Remote
Desktop, Remote Assistance, or NetMeeting is permitted without
an additional license.  As used above, a session means the
experience delivered by the SOFTWARE similar to when a user is
using the input, output and display peripherals attached to
the COMPUTER.
