Can you explain what you mean by "only 1 session can exist, kicking out the
1. Multiple VNC servers can be started simply by running "vncserver" to
create new servers.
2. What you describe is called "sharing", and can be forced by setting the
VNC server AlwaysShared parameter, or indicated per-connection by setting
the VNC server AlwaysShared and NeverShared options to false, and having VNC
viewer request a shared connection when required.
3. This is the default, since VNC viewer defaults to non-shared sessions
and VNC server defaults to closing existing connections if a non-shared
connection is received. You can force this in the server by setting
NeverShared to true (and AlwaysShared to false).
In both 2 & 3, the VNC server's DisconnectClients option should be true.
