NAME
       Xvnc - a VNC server

SYNOPSIS
       Xvnc   [-rfbport  port]	[-rfbwait  time]  [-nocursor] [-rfbauth passwd-file] [-httpd dir]
	      [-httpport port] [-deferupdate time]  [-economictranslate]  [-lazytight]	[-desktop
	      name]  [-alwaysshared]  [-nevershared]  [-dontdisconnect]  [-localhost] [-interface
	      ipaddr] [-inetd] [-compatiblekbd] [X-options...]

DESCRIPTION
       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
       details.

OPTIONS
       The VNC-specific options are as follows:

       -rfbport port
	      TCP port for RFB protocol.

       -rfbwait time
	      Maximum time, in milliseconds, to wait for RFB client.

       -nocursor
	      Don't put up a cursor.

       -rfbauth passwd-file
	      Use authentication on RFB protocol from specified file; see vncpasswd(1).

       -httpd dir
	      Serve files via HTTP from here.

       -httpport port
	      Port for HTTP.

       -deferupdate time
	      Time, in milliseconds, to defer updates (default 40).

       -economictranslate
	      Use less memory-hungry translation.

       -lazytight
	      Disable "gradient" filter in tight encoding.

       -desktop name
	      Set VNC desktop name (default x11).

       -alwaysshared
	      Always treat new clients as shared.

       -nevershared
	      Never treat new clients as shared.

       -dontdisconnect
	      Don't disconnect existing clients when a new non-shared connection comes in (refuse
	      new connection instead).

       -localhost
	      Only allow connections from localhost.

       -interface ipaddr
	      Only bind to the interface with given ipaddr.

       -inetd Xvnc is launched by inetd.

       -compatiblekbd
	      Set META key = ALT key, as in the original (AT&T) version of Xvnc.
