MultiCasting VNC

	There're two viewer options which might interest you while you're doing your project:
1) shared connection : this prevents a connected client from being disconnected when a new client establishes new connection

2) viewer mode : this makes a client displays only what's on server screen without sending keyboard or mouse events back to server. So the user sitting in front of the server won't be disturbed.
In VNC4 viewer, this option is "splitted" into several options.  It would be nice if they could be grouped together as sub-options to viewer mode.

	HTH
