CentOS 7.0 - man page for vncconfig (centos section 1)

vncconfig(1)			    Virtual Network Computing			     vncconfig(1)

       vncconfig - configure and control a VNC server

       vncconfig [parameters]
       vncconfig [parameters] -connect host[:port]
       vncconfig [parameters] -disconnect
       vncconfig [parameters] [-set] Xvnc-param=value ...
       vncconfig [parameters] -list
       vncconfig [parameters] -get Xvnc-param
       vncconfig [parameters] -desc Xvnc-param

       vncconfig  is  used  to	configure  and control a running instance of Xvnc, or any other X
       server with the VNC extension.  Note that it cannot be used to control VNC  servers  prior
       to version 4.

       When  run  with	no options, it runs as a kind of "helper" application for Xvnc.  Its main
       purpose when run in this mode is to  support  clipboard	transfer  to  and  from  the  VNC
       viewer(s).   Note  that without a running instance of vncconfig there will be no clipboard
       support.  It puts up a window with some checkboxes which can be used to disable	clipboard
       transfers  if required (in the future there may be more functions available from this win-
       dow).  The -nowin flag can be used if you always want clipboard support but don't wish  to
       clutter	the  desktop  with  this window - alternatively the -iconic option can be used to
       make it iconified by default.

       When run in any other mode, vncconfig is a one-shot program used to configure  or  control
       Xvnc  as appropriate.  It can be used to tell Xvnc to connect or disconnect from listening
       viewers, and to set and retrieve Xvnc's parameters.

       Note that the DISPLAY environment variable or the -display option must be set as appropri-
       ate  to	control Xvnc.  If you run it on an ordinary X server (or on a version 3 Xvnc) you
       will get an error message saying that there is no VNC extension.

       -connect host[:port]
	      Tells an Xvnc server to make a "reverse" connection to a listening VNC viewer (nor-
	      mally  connections  are  made  the  other  way  round  - the viewer connects to the
	      server). host is the host where the listening viewer is running. If it's	not  lis-
	      tening on the default port of 5500, you can specify host:port instead.

	      This causes Xvnc to disconnect from all viewers so that the VNC desktop is not dis-
	      played anywhere.

       [-set] Xvnc-param=value
	      Sets an Xvnc parameter to the given value.  Note that some of Xvnc's parameters are
	      read  only  once	at  startup  so  that  changing them in this way may not have any

       -list  Lists all the parameters supported by Xvnc.

       -get Xvnc-param
	      Prints the current value of the given Xvnc parameter.

       -desc Xvnc-param
	      Prints a short description of the given Xvnc parameter.

       vncconfig also has parameters of its own which can be set  on  the  command  line.   These
       should  not  be confused with Xvnc's parameters which are manipulated with the -set, -get,
       -list and -desc options.

       Parameters can be turned on with -param or off with -param=0.   Parameters  which  take	a
       value  can  be  specified as -param value.  Other valid forms are param=value -param=value
       --param=value.  Parameter names are case-insensitive.

       -display Xdisplay
	      Specifies the Xvnc server to control.

       -nowin When run as a "helper" app, don't put up a window.

	      When run as a "helper" app, make the window iconified at startup.

       VNC was originally developed by the RealVNC team while at Olivetti  Research  Ltd  /  AT&T
       Laboratories Cambridge.	TightVNC additions were implemented by Constantin Kaplinsky. Many
       other people participated in development, testing and support.
