       linuxvnc - export a tty to any VNC client


       linuxvnc [tty_number [args]]


       It  follows  the  same idea as WinVNC, x11vnc or OSXvnc, i.e. it takes an existing desktop
       and exports it via RFB (VNC), just that LinuxVNC exports text.

       If you want to export another tty, specify it as 'tty_number'.   You  can  also  pass  VNC
       options  to tune what encodings are used for the VNC session. You can read x11vnc man page
       for more information on this.
