Tutorial 2: Remote Desktop & VNC

Alright, "Remote Desktop" is a misnomer: this tutorial now focuses on only VNC communication with your Raspberry Pi, allowing you to access the desktop GUI remotely. It's like remote desktop, but more secure. In this tutorial I show you how to access the desktop of your Raspberry Pi remotely on your LAN using your home computer. I have a separate tutorial for both Windows and Mac platforms, so be sure to check out the tutorial relevant to you!
