Major programs in kdenetwork include kdict, kget, knewsticker, kopete, kpf, kppp, krdc, krfb, ksirc, ktalkd, kwifimanager and lisa.
krdc is a client application that allows you to view or even control the desktop session on another machine that is running a compatible (VNC) server.
krfb is a server application that allows you to share your current session with a user on another machine, who can use a VNC client to view or even control the desktop.
ktalkd is an enhanced talk daemon—a program to handle incoming talk requests, announce them and allow you to respond to them using a talk client.
