I have been searching for a way to start a VNC connection using a PHP webserver. I created a page for all of our computers but i would like to create a button that runs a VNC process and then connects to the computer they are looking at. Just wondering if this is possible. Thanks

Yeah, you can use a listening vnc viewer on your host and use the exec() function to run system commands.

You can run an instance of VNC passing parameters to specify to connect to the listening vnc viewer.


Another way to do this is to prepare vnc packets that are preconfigured to connect to your public IP (then natted to your private IP where listening VNC is running).
