no, that's not correct.  It's not the same as VNC.  IF you installed VMware Server AND someone knew how to access the web-based console AND they had the right credentials to login with, THEN they could see the console screen of ONLY the virtual machines you had running within VMware Server.

If you have VMware installed (what version?), if you have created a Guest Virtual Machine on your host computer, users may access the Guest Virtual Machines via a remote location.

But access any PC or Server depends on have access permissions setup, usernames and passwords, and also IP address of the PC/Servers to access.
