       tigervncconfig - configure and control a VNC server


       tigervncconfig [parameters]
       tigervncconfig [parameters] -connect host[:port]
       tigervncconfig [parameters] -disconnect
       tigervncconfig [parameters] [-set] Xtigervnc-param=value ...
       tigervncconfig [parameters] -list
       tigervncconfig [parameters] -get Xvnc-param
       tigervncconfig [parameters] -desc Xvnc-param


       tigervncconfig  is  used  to configure and control a running instance of Xtigervnc, or any
       other X server with the VNC extension.  Note that it cannot be used to control VNC servers
       prior to version 4.

       When  run  with  no options, it runs as a kind of "helper" application for Xtigervnc.  Its
       main purpose when run in this mode is to query the user  how  new  connections  should  be
       handled (provided this feature is enabled). The -nowin flag can be used if you always want
       the query support but don't wish to  clutter  the  desktop  with  the  settings  window  -
       alternatively the -iconic option can be used to make it iconified by default.

       When  run  in any other mode, vncconfig is a one-shot program used to configure or control
       Xtigervnc as appropriate.  It can be used to tell Xtigervnc to connect or disconnect  from
       listening viewers, and to set and retrieve Xtigervnc's parameters.

       Note  that  the  DISPLAY  environment  variable  or  the  -display  option  must be set as
       appropriate to control Xtigervnc.  If you run it on an ordinary X server (or on a  version
       3 Xtigervnc) you will get an error message saying that there is no VNC extension.


       -connect host[:port]
              Tells  an Xtigervnc server to make a "reverse" connection to a listening VNC viewer
              (normally connections are made the other way round - the  viewer  connects  to  the
              server).  host  is  the  host  where  the  listening viewer is running. If it's not
              listening on the default port of 5500, you can specify host:port instead.

              This causes Xtigervnc to disconnect from all viewers so that the VNC desktop is not
              displayed anywhere.

       [-set] Xvnc-param=value
              Sets  an  Xtigervnc  parameter  to  the given value.  Note that some of Xtigervnc's
              parameters are read only once at startup so that changing them in this way may  not
              have any effect.

       -list  Lists all the parameters supported by Xtigervnc.

       -get Xvnc-param
              Prints the current value of the given Xtigervnc parameter.

       -desc Xvnc-param
              Prints a short description of the given Xtigervnc parameter.


       tigervncconfig also has parameters of its own which can be set on the command line.  These
       should not be confused with Xtigervnc's parameters which are manipulated  with  the  -set,
       -get, -list and -desc options.

       Parameters  can  be  turned  on with -param or off with -param=0.  Parameters which take a
       value can be specified as -param value.  Other valid forms  are  param=value  -param=value
       --param=value.  Parameter names are case-insensitive.

       -display Xdisplay
              Specifies the Xtigervnc server to control.

       -nowin When run as a "helper" app, don't put up a window.

              When run as a "helper" app, make the window iconified at startup.

       VNC  was  originally  developed  by the RealVNC team while at Olivetti Research Ltd / AT&T
       Laboratories Cambridge.  TightVNC additions were implemented by Constantin Kaplinsky. Many
       other  people  have since participated in development, testing and support. This manual is
       part of the TigerVNC software suite.
