with it with vncconfig. It seems that on Windows, I can communicate with the

What I have not found is a way to get a RealVNC server, on Linux or Windows,
to exit without killing the process. On Windows it is possible to do it by

killed, the user has to delete lock files to avoid problems with which

other way without "kill -9 $(pidof vncserver)" ? And is it possible to stop
a running server on Windows from the console as well?
Thank you for any help on this!
