This is a pretty well hidden feature of OSX: It's a VNC client shipped with the OS but not accessible from Spotlight or any shortcuts (AFAIK). To open it, you can either:

  • Open Safari and enter "vnc://192.168.0.10" in the address field (replace the IP-address)
  • Open the app directly (from Finder or Terminal) from it's location at /System/Library/CoreServices/Screen Sharing.app
  • From Finder, press cmd+K (Connect to Server) and enter the vnc-address.

When you have the app open, you can pin it to the Dock as with any app.

Thanks to DavidTheExpert for this great tip :)
