I trying to find a way to view and modify open office documets on remote 2003 web server  trough java vnc. Any way I can run OpenOffice as a server and then connect from vnc to the OpenOffice port?
I don't want users to view server's desktop, instead just direct users to OpenOffice document.

As no other expert has yet chimed in, I figure this isn't a readily available application.  I shall let you know up front: I'm basing this text on assumptions: I don't know for certain that this will work!  If another expert gives you their assurance of a better answer, go with them. :)

The OpenOffice.org application has an SDK & the VNC protocol is publicly known.  What I believe you are attempting to describe is a VNC-based protocol which allows for remote pass-through to the OpenOffice.org server.  The VNC protocol is *not* OpenOffice.org-aware & therefore you would have to write your own VNC server and VNC client which *are* OpenOffice.org-aware and can run without the visual element of the whole VNC protocol.
