Application sharing, instead of full desktop sharing feature was implemented
by Celine Ferage(sp?) as a patch. I think TightVNC will be including this
patch in the next release

That wasn't a serious idea for someone to easily implement... :)

AFAIK, there is no way to do this with WinVNC.

arena...someone
