:: Right now, I am depending on the cooperation of whomever I give the
:: "password" to for them to share and "view-only" my desktop. Since
:: the view-only feature is really controlled from the client side.
: I added -viewonly switch to Xvnc server (checked on RH Linux).
: You can find my original e-mail at:
: Please read it.
Alternatively, set up two different rfb passwd files, and
Xvnc :1 -rfbauth key1 &
Xvnc :2 -rfbauth key2 &
env DISPLAY=:2 vncviewer :1 -fullscreen -viewonly -passwd key1 &
env DISPLAY=:1 twm &
( Decorate with additional options to taste,
such as -depth, -geometry, etc )
If you want other folks to be able to view only, you give them the
password for :2 only. You keep the password for :1 to yourself.
(And, of course, make sure nobody but you can read the files key1 and key2.)
Very simple. Very easy.
