There is a subtle difference. rdesktop provides a second session that
is independent of any other logged on sessions. VNC lets you take
control of the PC screen, handy for support but not always required.
Also I think rdesktop runs better than true VNC, try tightvnc.org or one
of the other VNC versions.

In theory it should be easy to do port forwarding.
