Remote (cross platform) control through ethernet cable?

Hi,

I have laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 and I'm looking at a mini mac.

I would like to operate it remotely (it has no screen/keyboard/mouse of its own) but not through the internet.

I mean, it is possible to connect using VNC viewer using the IP address of the mac mini (as described in the post below for a PC):

Could I connect the two locally through an ethernet cable instead, and then control the mac from the laptop using VNC?

If anyone out there has any advice for doing this I would appreciate the help!

Cheers

I've done something similar with Teamviewer, works on most platforms, and you can connect using direct IP instead of over their servers....
