     vncconfig - configure and control a VNC server

     /usr/bin/vncconfig [parameters]
     vncconfig [parameters] -connect host[:port]
     vncconfig [parameters] -disconnect
     vncconfig [parameters] [-set] Xvnc-param=value ...
     vncconfig [parameters] -list
     vncconfig [parameters] -get Xvnc-param
     vncconfig [parameters] -desc Xvnc-param

     vncconfig  is  used  to  configure  and  control  a  running
     instance  of Xvnc, or any other X server with the VNC exten-
     sion.  Note that it cannot be used to  control  VNC  servers
     prior to version 4.

     When run with no options, it runs  as  a  kind  of  "helper"
     application  for  Xvnc.   Its  main purpose when run in this
     mode is to support clipboard transfer to and  from  the  VNC
     viewer(s).   Note that without a running instance of vnccon-
     fig there will be no clipboard support.  It puts up a window
     with  some checkboxes which can be used to disable clipboard
     transfers if required (in the future there may be more func-
     tions  available  from this window).  The -nowin flag can be
     used if you always want clipboard support but don't wish  to
     clutter  the  desktop  with  this window - alternatively the
     -iconic option can be used to make it iconified by default.

     When run in any other mode, vncconfig is a one-shot  program
     used to configure or control Xvnc as appropriate.  It can be
     used to tell Xvnc to connect or  disconnect  from  listening
     viewers, and to set and retrieve Xvnc's parameters.

     Note that the DISPLAY environment variable or  the  -display
     option  must  be set as appropriate to control Xvnc.  If you
     run it on an ordinary X server (or on a version 3 Xvnc)  you
     will get an error message saying that there is no VNC exten-

     -connect host[:port]
          Tells an Xvnc server to make a "reverse" connection  to
          a  listening  VNC viewer (normally connections are made
          the other way  round  -  the  viewer  connects  to  the
          server). host is the host where the listening viewer is
          running. If it's not listening on the default  port  of
          5500, you can specify host:port instead.

          This causes Xvnc to disconnect from all viewers so that
          the VNC desktop is not displayed anywhere.

     [-set] Xvnc-param=value
          Sets an Xvnc parameter to the given value.   Note  that
          some of Xvnc's parameters are read only once at startup
          so that changing them in this  way  may  not  have  any

          Lists all the parameters supported by Xvnc.

     -get Xvnc-param
          Prints the current value of the given Xvnc parameter.

     -desc Xvnc-param
          Prints a short description of the given Xvnc parameter.

     vncconfig also has parameters of its own which can be set on
     the  command line.  These should not be confused with Xvnc's
     parameters which are manipulated with the -set, -get,  -list
     and -desc options.

     Parameters  can  be  turned  on  with  -param  or  off  with
     -param=0.  Parameters which take a value can be specified as
     -param   value.    Other   valid   forms   are   param=value
     -param=value   --param=value.   Parameter  names  are  case-

     -display Xdisplay
          Specifies the Xvnc server to control.

          When run as a "helper" app, don't put up a window.

          When run as a "helper" app, make the  window  iconified
          at startup.
