NAME

vncserver - a wrapper to launch an X server for VNC. 

SYNOPSIS

vncserver[:display] [-geometry widthxheight] [-depth depth][-pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN] [-name desktop-name][Xvnc-options...]
vncserver -kill :display
vncserver -help
 

DESCRIPTION

vncserver is a wrapper script for Xvnc, the free X serverfor VNC (Virtual Network Computing). It provides all capabilities of astandard X server, but does not connect to a display for itself.Instead, Xvnc creates a virtual desktop you can view or controlremotely using a VNC viewer. 

OPTIONS

You can add Xvnc options at the command line. They will be addedto the invocation of Xvnc without changes. The options provided by thevncserver itself are as follows:
:display
The display number to use. If omitted, the next free display numberis used.
-geometry widthxheight
Set desktop width and height.
-depth depth
Set the colour depth of the visual to provide, in bits per pixel. Mustbe a value between 8 and 32.
-pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN
Set colour format for pixels representation. The viewer can do theconversion to any other pixel format, but it is faster if the depthand pixel format of the server is the same as the equivalent values onthe viewer display.
-name string
This specifies the name of the desktop.
-kill :display
Stops the session running on the specified display.
-help
Prints a short usage notice to stderr.
