You can have a look at the next pages to do something you might like. For
all of them: there is a vnc-server available at the moment you point
vncviewer to it.
... to start a new server on the fly. It is presented for linux which is
just an other unix. I bet you only need to adapt the /etc/services and
To check if it might work: `Xvnc :4 -query localhost`.
Details to the /etc/inetd.conf file:
- use the path to your Xvnc binary.
- add the fontpath (-fp ...) to reflect your local fontpath (`xrdb -q`)
If you use the XFree86 Xserver: gives access to :0
If your Xserver uses the framebuffer device: gives access to :0
