I know the settings can change, but only per the options on there server
correct? Are there any plans for a "fit to screen" option in the viewport?
it would be similar to the zoom wizard that's build into the view port,
except you would be able to resize the window, and choose fit to screen as a

Well, the nature of VNC is that the server-side provides a (static)
Where VNC provides a view at the console (all M$Windows, some linux) there
setting of the console also sets the vnc-server-side. As far as I know, the
vnc-server will reset if the console-geometry changes so the viewer must
restarted. On most unix and linux implementations, the resolution is set at
startup and cannot be changed on the fly.
The vncviewer only shows what the server offers and unfortunatly, once the
server resets, the viewer must also be restarted. So, no there is no easy
change the resolution on the fly.
On the viewer-side, there are 2 ways to change the display geometry (or
said: viewport size): By default the view just is clipped around the edges,
scrollbars are provided to change the viewport. There are viewers that can
reduce the view by interleaving: the resolution of the same picture is
just as your picture viewer will resize.
So yes, vnc can change size, both on server as on client side. However, not
way you like it...
