NAME
vncserver - a wrapper to launch an X server for VNC. SYNOPSIS
vncserver [:display] [-geometry widthxheight] [-depth depth] [-pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN] [-name desktop-name] [Xvnc-options...] vncserver -kill :display vncserver -help DESCRIPTION
vncserver is a wrapper script for Xvnc, the free X server for VNC (Virtual Network Computing). It provides all capabilities of a standard X server, but does not connect to a display for itself. Instead, Xvnc creates a virtual desktop you can view or control remotely using a VNC viewer. OPTIONS
You can add Xvnc options at the command line. They will be added to the invocation of Xvnc without changes. The options provided by the vncserver itself are as follows: :display The display number to use. If omitted, the next free display number is used. -geometry widthxheight Set desktop width and height. -depth depth Set the colour depth of the visual to provide, in bits per pixel. Must be a value between 8 and 32. -pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN Set colour format for pixels representation. The viewer can do the conversion to any other pixel format, but it is faster if the depth and pixel format of the server is the same as the equivalent values on the viewer display. -name string This specifies the name of the desktop. -kill :display Stops the session running on the specified display. -help Prints a short usage notice to stderr. EXAMPLES
vncserver Invokes Xvnc on the next available display and with suitable defaults. vncserver :1 Invokes Xvnc on display :1. vncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 16 :1 Invokes Xvnc on display :1 with desktop size of 800x600 pixels and color depth of 16 bits per pixel. vncserver -kill :1 Shuts down Xvnc server on display :1. SEE ALSO
Xvnc(1), vncviewer(1), vncpasswd(1), vncconnect(1) AUTHORS
Original VNC was developed in AT&T Laboratories Cambridge. TightVNC additions were implemented by Constantin Kaplinsky. Many other people participated in development, testing and support.

The real port number will be port = base + display num. -httpport int The http port to use for the java client applet (you have to install the tightvnc-java package to make this work). -help Prints a short usage notice to stderr.
