    Very cool.

    Not entirely sure I understand what’s going on behind the scenes though.

    What exactly are you controlling on the other end of the VNC connection? You can’t run a VM on JavaScript / CF Workers… so what exactly is it?

    VNC server is being tunneled by Cloudflared Tunnel so that you can use Cloudflare Access to control access from a VNC client to the VNC server.

    They actually fully render the session in browser, the same as they offer for their SSH tunnel. So you don't need to run your own VNC thick client on your machine, it's all done in the browser.

    Indeed I meant the browser is the VNC client :)
