F>          -fullscreen %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

Please note that in the command line above, both -compresslevel and
-quality options do not make much sense. The -compresslevel option is
meaningful only for Zlib-based encodings (e.g. Zlib and Tight), and
the -quality option makes sense with Tight encoding only.

Regarding the -encoding option, it is used to specify the prefered
encoding, while the -encodings option in the Unix viewer takes a list
of all encodings to be enabled. So the

  vncviewer.exe -encoding hextile

is similar to something like this, under Unix:

  vncviewer -encodings "hextile copyrect rre corre tight zlib"

(maybe not in that particular order).

With Best Wishes,
