VNCVIEWER(1)			     General Commands Manual			     VNCVIEWER(1)

NAME
       vncviewer - VNC client application

SYNOPSIS
       vncviewer [options] host:display#
       vncviewer [options] -listen [display#]

DESCRIPTION
       View  a	VNC session.  This is an Xt-based client application for the VNC (Virtual Network
       Computing) system.  You can use vncviewer to use a computing desktop environment  that  is
       running on a different machine.

       You can use F8 to display a pop-up utility menu.

OPTIONS
       The options are standard Xt options, or:

       -shared
	      When connecting, specify that a shared connection is allowed.  This is the default.

       -noshared
	      When connecting, specify that the session may not be shared.

       -viewonly
	      Block mouse and keyboard events.

       -fullscreen
	      Occupy the entire screen.

       -passwd passwd-file
	      File from which to get the password (as generated by the vncpasswd(1) program).

       -encodings encoding-list
	      A  list  of  encodings  to  use  in  order of preference, separated by spaces.  The
	      default is "copyrect tight hextile zlib corre rre", or "raw copyrect tight  hextile
	      zlib corre rre" for a VNC server on the same machine.

       -bgr233
	      Always use the BGR233 (8-bit) pixel format on the wire, regardless of the visual.

       -owncmap
	      Try to use a PseudoColor visual and a private colormap - this allows the VNC server
	      to control the colormap.

       -truecolour
	      Try to use a TrueColor visual.

       -depth depth
	      Try to use a visual of this depth (bits per pixel).

       -compresslevel level
	      Use specified compression level (0-9) for tight encoding.

       -quality level
	      Use the specified image quality level (0-9) for tight encoding.

       -nocursorshape
	      Disable the local cursor shape extension.

       -via gateway [host]:display
	      Tunnel via the gateway to the specified VNC host's display.  By default  this  uses
	      ssh(1).

       -noraiseonbeep
	      By  default the viewer window is raised when a beep (bell) is received from the VNC
	      session.	This option disables that.
