DirectVNC is a client implementing the remote framebuffer protocol (rfb) which is used by VNC servers. What makes DirectVNC different from other Unix VNC clients is that it uses the Linux framebuffer device through the hardware accelerated DirectFB library, which enables it to run on anything that has a framebuffer without the need for an X server.
