Xvnc is a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) server. It acts like an X server with a virtual
display. The display can be seen by a VNC viewer application, which may be running on a
different machine: see vncviewer(1).
It is built inside the source code tree of XFree86, and shares many options with it.
Note that if you are going to use VNC on an untrusted network, you will need to use SSH to
prevent unauthorised access. See <URL:http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/sshvnc.html> for
The VNC-specific options are as follows:
TCP port for RFB protocol.
Maximum time, in milliseconds, to wait for RFB client.
Don't put up a cursor.
Use authentication on RFB protocol from specified file; see vncpasswd(1).
Serve files via HTTP from here.
Port for HTTP.
Time, in milliseconds, to defer updates (default 40).
Use less memory-hungry translation.
Disable "gradient" filter in tight encoding.
Set VNC desktop name (default x11).
Always treat new clients as shared.
Never treat new clients as shared.
Don't disconnect existing clients when a new non-shared connection comes in (refuse
new connection instead).
Only allow connections from localhost.
Only bind to the interface with given ipaddr.
-inetd Xvnc is launched by inetd.
Set META key = ALT key, as in the original (AT&T) version of Xvnc.
