Install vncserver od dom0 and change:

(vnc-listen '')

to either ip address od dom0 or and if you use for domU
guests: vnc=1, vncviewer=0 and you will be able to connect from other
machine by typing:

vncviewer ip_address_dom0:ID_of_domU

This is very easy to accomplish if you use HVM guest, but also it is
possible if you use paravirtualized guests.

Here is one of the many useful links:
