So you mean actions like 'Send Ctrl-Alt-Del' on Linux will still
reboot the system? Even from the 'view-only' console on :2 ?
Its really a 'read-write' session showing a read-only viewer. If you
managed to pop any tools onto that screen, they would be read-write
for you :-)

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.
