VNC server that binds itself to physical display
Posted on 2004-08-20
I have been using VNC server for different types of OS's. Normally when VNC server is started in a Windows host, the VNC client connects to the same screen displayed physically on the host's monitor. This way, I leave the desktop open and my settings (open app's, window locations etc) stay as they are. However; on linux I can only bind the VNC server to a new X server port, thus the screen I see with VNC and the screen visible on the monitor of the device are created by two different X server threads. While this has its own benefits, I just wish to access the physical screen of the linux machine as I do in Windows based machines.
Any quick comments would be appreciated...
