Sourcetrunk (Episode 026) : X11VNC

This episode will demonstrate how to remote desktop your way into a simple or complex, existing X11 session with x11vnc, take a look at the excellent XML Copy Editor and show you widget-o-rama with SuperKaramba

I. System Tools : x11vnc
11vnc allows one to view remotely and interact with real X displays (i.e. a display corresponding to a physical monitor, keyboard, and mouse) with any VNC viewer. In this way it plays the role for Unix/X11 that WinVNC plays for Windows.

It has built-in SSL encryption and authentication, UNIX account and password support, server-side scaling, single port HTTPS and VNC, mDNS service advertising, and TightVNC and UltraVNC file-transfer. It has also been extended to work with non-X devices: webcams and TV tuner capture devices, embedded Linux systems such as Qtopia Core, and natively on Mac OS X Aqua/Quartz.

use it encrypted :
% ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 (yourserverip) ’x11vnc -localhost -display :0’
