Is there a "view only" mode?

Merci, Christophe :).

This one has me stumped. I believe you actually need to make a change on the *server*, since the applet and its options are served
from there.  The problem is I have no clue how to modify the Java to make this happen - or even where it is stored on an NT 4 system
which I am using as a VNC server presently.

I am still thinking about this, but I think the actual person who needs to comment would be someone who has experience with the VNC
Java server...

: Hi Alex,
:
: Happy New Year!
:
: I am just accessing the desktop from the http server on Unix or on a PC:
: in fact the build/test run can be monitored during the run (for now a
: basic cgi collect the datas and generate a web page). Some time some
: test are hanging and it is not simple to know if they are hanging
: because of a graphical problem (a new popup asking a confirmation not
: planed into the graphical test for instance) or if they are hanging due
: to something else...
: Since VNC allow to access the desktop through an http server, I tough to
: add a link to that server for all the test still running. But, if I do
: that currently, the fact to connect the server can perturbate the test.
:
: So I would like to be able to open the desktop in read-only by default,
: then eventually to switch in read/write to fix be able to fix the
: hang...
:
: Hope it is more clear now.
: Thanks for the help!
