       vncconfig - configure and control a VNC server


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


       vncconfig  is  used  to  configure  and control a running instance of Xvnc, 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 Xvnc.  Its main
       purpose when run in this mode is to  support  clipboard  transfer  to  and  from  the  VNC
       viewer(s).   Note  that without a running instance of vncconfig there will be no clipboard
       support.  It puts up a window with some checkboxes which can be used to disable  clipboard
       transfers  if  required  (in  the  future  there may be more functions available from this
       window).  The -nowin flag can be used if you always want clipboard support but don't  wish
       to  clutter the desktop with this 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
       Xvnc  as appropriate.  It can be used to tell Xvnc to connect or disconnect from listening
       viewers, and to set and retrieve Xvnc's parameters.

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


       -connect host[:port]
              Tells an Xvnc 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  Xvnc  to  disconnect  from all viewers so that the VNC desktop is not
              displayed anywhere.

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

       -list  Lists all the parameters supported by Xvnc.

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

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


       vncconfig also has parameters of its own which can be set  on  the  command  line.   These
       should  not  be confused with Xvnc'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 Xvnc 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.
