RealVNC, TightVNC  are free options that allow you to connect.  What features are you looking for?  Remote connection and control?  You looking for more logging options?

We use Microsoft SMS for that.  Not free.

If you are looking for free software that will allow you to push vnc out to remote desktops so you can control it, then you can use PUSHVNC.  It installs a copy of realvnc on their machine for you.
