we want to use vnc in our school-network to make it possible to look at
pupil-clients and to show the teachers-screen to all pupils.
For Windows there is a destop-programm, but for Linux there is none (we
We looked at the manuals and know how to use vnc in "usual" mode: we can
look at an other computer and control it. We also found the commands to
start the client in listening-mode:
vncviewer -listen :0
Then on the server we executed the following command:
vncconnect -display :0 hostname
... but nothing happend! No error-message!
We are working on a Suse 9.1-System with kde 3.2.1, which has already
started vncserver on display 0. We tested vnc and it is working.
Do you have some examples, how to use the server and viewer in listening
mode and how to connect from server to the client via vncconnect?
Thanks in advance,
Birgit and Bernd Lachner
