       x0vncserver - TigerVNC Server for X displays

       x0vncserver [options]
       x0vncserver -version

       x0vncserver  is	a  TigerVNC Server which makes any X display remotely accessible via VNC,
       TigerVNC or compatible viewers.	Unlike Xvnc(1), it does not  create  a	virtual  display.
       Instead,  it just shares an existing X server (typically, that one connected to the physi-
       cal screen).

       x0vncserver interprets the command line as a list  of  parameters  with	optional  values.
       Running	x0vncserver  -h will show a list of all valid parameters with short descriptions.
       All parameters are optional, but normally you would have to use the PasswordFile parameter
       (see its description below).

       There are several forms of specifying parameters in the command line (here we use `SomePa-
       rameter' as an example parameter name):

	      Enable the parameter, turn the feature on.  This form can be used  with  parameters
	      that simply enable or disable some feature.

	      Disable the parameter, turn the feature off.

	      Assign  the  specified value to the parameter.  The leading dash can be omitted, or
	      it can be doubled if desired (like in GNU-style long options).

       Parameter names are case-insensitive, their order in the command line can be arbitrary.

	      The X display name.  If not specified, it defaults to  the  value  of  the  DISPLAY
	      environment variable.

	      TCP  port  to listen for incoming VNC connections (RFB protocol).  The default port
	      is 5900.

       Log    Specifies which log output should be directed to which target logger, and the level
	      of  output to log.  Format is log:target:level.  Default is *:stderr:30 (log every-
	      thing to stderr, set log level to 30).  Log level should be a value between  0  and
	      100, higher levels produce more output.

	      This  parameter  allows  to  specify a file name with IP access control rules.  The
	      file should include one rule per line, and the rule format is one of the following:
	      +address/netmask	 (accept   connections	 from	the   specified  address  group),
	      -address/netmask (reject connections) or ?address/netmask (query the  local  user).
	      The  first  rule	matching  the  IP  address determines the action to be performed.
	      Rules that include only an action sign (+, - or ?) will match any IP address.  Net-
	      mask   is   optional   and   can	 be  specified	either	in  dotted  format  (e.g.
	      /, or as a single number of bits (e.g. /24).  Default  is  to  accept
	      connections from any IP address.

	      Specify  which  security	scheme to use for incoming connections.  Valid values are
	      None and VncAuth.  Default is VncAuth.

	      Service name for pam password validation (default is "vnc").

	      Users permission to access via Plain security type.

       PasswordFile, rfbauth
	      Password file for VNC authentication.  There is no default, you should specify  the
	      password	file  explicitly.   Password file should be created with the vncpasswd(1)

	      Obfuscated binary encoding of the password which clients must supply to access  the
	      server.  Using this parameter is insecure, use PasswordFile parameter instead.

	      The  number of unauthenticated connection attempts allowed from any individual host
	      before that host is black-listed.  Default is 5.

	      The initial timeout applied when a host is first black-listed.  The host cannot re-
	      attempt a connection until the timeout expires.  Default is 10.

	      Prompt the local user to accept or reject incoming connections.  Default is off.

	      Number of seconds to show the Accept Connection dialog before rejecting the connec-
	      tion.  Default is 10.

	      Always treat incoming connections as shared,  regardless	of  the  client-specified
	      setting.	Default is off.

	      Never treat incoming connections as shared, regardless of the client-specified set-
	      ting.  Default is off.

	      Disconnect existing clients if an incoming connection is non-shared.   If  combined
	      with  NeverShared  then  new  connections  will  be refused while there is a client
	      active.  Default is on.

	      Accept key press and release events from clients.  Default is on.

	      Accept pointer events from clients.  Default is on.

	      Accept clipboard updates from clients.  Default is on.

	      Maximum permitted length of an incoming clipboard update (default is 262144).

	      Send clipboard changes to clients.  Default is on.

	      Comma-separated list of incoming keysyms to remap.  Mappings are expressed  as  two
	      hex  values, prefixed by 0x, and separated by -> (`dash' and `greater than' charac-

	      Always use RFB protocol version 3.3 for backwards compatibility with  badly-behaved
	      clients.	Default is off.

	      This  option specifies the screen area that will be shown to VNC clients.  The for-
	      mat is widthxheight+xoffset+yoffset , where `+' signs  can  be  replaced	with  `-'
	      signs to specify offsets from the right and/or from the bottom of the screen.  Off-
	      sets are optional, +0+0 is assumed by default (top left corner).	If  the  argument
	      is empty, full screen is shown to VNC clients (this is the default).

	      Maximum  percentage of CPU time to be consumed when polling the screen.  Default is

	      Milliseconds per one polling cycle.  Actual interval may be dynamically adjusted to
	      satisfy MaxProcessorUsage setting.  Default is 30.

	      This option specifies the screen area that will be handled as video.  The format is
	      widthxheight+xoffset+yoffset , where `+' signs can be replaced with  `-'	signs  to
	      specify  offsets	from the right and/or from the bottom of the screen.  Offsets are
	      optional, +0+0 is assumed by default (top left corner).  Video area is not  checked
	      for  actual  changes, it is assumed to be changing continuously and is sent in each
	      screen update.  Normally, video area is compressed with JPEG  (if  allowed  by  the
	      client).	 Note  that  this setting can be overriden by TigerVNC clients supporting
	      VideoRectangleSelection protocol extension.  In other  words,  clients  may  choose
	      video  selection	themselves, but if they do not, then the VideoArea parameter will
	      take effect.  If the argument is empty, no video area is set (this is the default).

	      Perform pixel comparison on framebuffer to reduce unnecessary updates.  Default  is

       UseSHM Use  MIT-SHM  extension if available.  Using that extension accelerates reading the
	      screen.  Default is on.

	      Use overlay mode in IRIX or Solaris (does not have effect in other systems).   This
	      enables  system-specific	access	to complete full-color version of the screen (the
	      default X visual often provides 256 colors).  Also, in  overlay  mode,  x0vncserver
	      can show correct mouse cursor.  Default is on.

	      Zlib  compression  level	for  ZRLE  encoding  (it does not affect Tight encoding).
	      Acceptable values are between 0 and 9.  Default is to use the standard  compression
	      level provided by the zlib(3) compression library.

	      Use  improved compression algorithm for Hextile encoding which achieves better com-
	      pression ratios by the cost of using slightly more CPU time.  Default is on.

	      The number of seconds after which an idle VNC  connection  will  be  dropped  (zero
	      means no timeout).  Default is 0.

	      Terminate when no client has been connected for N seconds.  Default is 0.

	      Terminate when a client has been connected for N seconds.  Default is 0.

	      Terminate after N seconds of user inactivity.  Default is 0.

	      The  number  of  milliseconds  to  wait for a client which is no longer responding.
	      Default is 20000.

	      Time in milliseconds to defer updates (default is 1).

	      Always reset the defer update timer on every change.

	      Path to key of the x509 certificate in PEM format.

	      Path to x509 certificate in PEM format.
