Hi, I'm using x11vnc on the server and tigervnc as the client with ssh tunneling. Everything worked easily. Both systems are Slack64 However, I have one problem, which is that the vncviewer window is just a little too small for the image.Forums New posts Search forums. What's new New posts Latest activity.

Hi, I dont' know how and if I can do this. I have a kvm server which I use at work with the desktop set to a x resolution which fits well my computer display at work. But if I need to connect with another pc eg: through a vpn from elsewhere I could have a smaller computer display, like x, and login could be difficult because the opened browser window is x Currently display is "default". Would other choice help in this respect? Since the used pc could not support spice or rdp, I would prefer a more compatible solution.
Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. I use VNC to connect to a Linux workstation at work. At work I have a 20" monitor that runs at x, while at home I use my laptop with its resolution of x If I set the vncserver to run at x I miss out on a lot of space on my monitor, whereas if I set it to run at x it doesn't fit on the laptop's screen, and I have to scroll it all the time.
Real VNC server 4. Start the server with:. Found out that the vnc4server 4. Unfortunately the feature was hard to find because it is undocumented. So here it is From a terminal in a vncviewer with: 'allow dymanic desktop resizing' enabled use xrandr to view the available modes:. I just start vncserver without any -randr or multiple -geometry options. I think your best best is to run the VNC server with a different geometry on a different port.
I would try based on the man page. I think the developers who wrote the code are much smarter and the hard coded list is just a sample of values.
It leads to the conclusion that there must be a way to add custom modelines and man xrandr confirms it. With that background if the goal is to share a VNC session between two computers with the above resolutions and assuming that the VNC server is the computer with the resolution of "x":. Interestingly no one answered this.
In TigerVNC, when you are logged into the session. Click on the resolution drop down, there are various settings available including p. Select the one that you like. It will change on the fly. Make sure you Apply the new setting when a dialog is prompted. Otherwise it will revert back to the previous setting just like in Windows.
Use it like this: vncsize With this the resolution changes to fit the size of the client window no matter what it is, and it's not zoomingit's actual resolution change I can see the new resolution in xrandr output.
I tried all I could to add a new resolution to the xrandr, but to no avail, always end up with 'xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default' error.
I'm not sure about linux, but under windows, tightvnc will detect and adapt to resolution changes on the server. So you should be able to VNC into the workstation, do the equivalent of right-click on desktop, properties, set resolution to whatever, and have your client vnc window resize itself accordingly. On the other hand, if there's a way to move an existing window from one X-server to another, that might solve the problem. I think you can use xmove to move windows between two separate x-servers.
So if it works, this should at least give you a way to do what you want albeit not as easily as changing the resolution. As far as I know there's no way to change the client's resolution just using VNC, as it is just a "monitor mirroring" application.

That should work if you don't use too small font sizes. I'm a windows user, so this might be a wrong guess, but: Isn't there something called X-Server running on linux machines - at least on ones that might be interesting targets for VNC - that you can connect to with "X-Clients"? VNC just takes everything that's on the screen and "tunnels it through your network".
Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It only takes a minute to sign up. Is it possible to change the resolution of the viewer specified during starting of the vnc server with the geometry command line argument? I have a vncserver configured for a wide screen monitor but I want to view it on a x screen. The UltraVNC viewer supports auto scalingso it will resize the viewing window automatically, to display the whole screen of the remote server.
Real VNC server 4. Start the server with:. No need to set anything anywhere, on the client or on the server. When you first connect to your server, the resolution is set to whatever is preset on the server side but you can easily change it just by resizing the client window; to any resolution, any crazy, non-standard, ad-hoc resolution you want.
The remote desktop resolution, say KDE, follows your client window resolution smoothly. Please don't confuse auto resolution change with image stretchingalternatively called auto-scaling. This caling is virtually useless, unless you are visually impaired. It works like zoom or looking glass in popular bitmap editors.
It just makes pixels bigger or smaller by stretching the output image. It decrease image quality significantly, if you stretch a lot. What users typically want is real resolution change of the remote session.
And that is what I talk about earlier and that is what TigetVNC client is capable, providing server has matching functionality. Auto-resolutioning keeps image sharp at any size.
Downside is it also increases network bandwidth. If you want only viewer, then download only viewer, like vncviewer Beware that with TigerVNC server service starts automatically, silently, in the background, which I strongly detest as a possible security threat.
My server is run with no -randr setting at all and just basic -geometry x This low resolution is used only when you first connect, but then you can change the resolution just by resizing the client window. If you are curious, here is my full VNC server command:.Due to high volumes, response times in the community may be delayed over the next few days.

Also known as remote desktop sharingVNC is typically used by people wanting to monitor or control a computer from a remote location rather than just accessing shared files. The following free software packages provide VNC functionality. VNC software consists of a client user interface plus a server that manages connections to clients and sends desktop images. Some applications only support Windows PCs, while others are portable across different types of network devices. VNC systems use network authentication to guard the connections initiated between clients and a server, but the remote desktop data subsequently sent over these connections is usually not encrypted.
The TightVNC Server and Viewer use special data encoding techniques designed to better support lower-speed network connections.
First released inthe latest versions of TightVNC run on all modern flavors of Windows, and a Java version of the Viewer is also available. Download TightVNC. Download TigerVNC. This free client is not officially supported on Windows 7 or Vista PCs, but workaround procedures might allow it to function. Download Chicken of the VNC.
While the developer strongly encourages regular users to purchase a license, the software is free to try.
Mochasoft provides both a full commercial pay, not free version and this free Lite version of its VNC client for Apple iPhone and iPad. Compared to the full version, Mocha VNC Lite lacks support for special key sequences like Ctrl-Alt-Del and some mouse functions like right-click or click-and-drag. However, the extensions in EchoVNC for improved firewall compatibility rely on a proxy server system called "echoServer" that is a separate, commercial product.

Hi - I'm a video producer with a late iMac at work. I often connect remotely through VNC from my personal Macbook Pro to do video editing and motion graphics work on my more powerful work machine. However, the inability to stream the audio from my remote machine over VNC has lately become a big problem. In fact, I'm surprised I can't find more information about this problem I imagine others who work remotely are also facing this issue.
Everything out there seems to support streaming audio from one mac to another through the SAME wireless network. Unfortunately, I'm needing the audio to stream from one mac to another, connected to different wireless networks. I do connect using VPN before initiating the screen share, so I think it would be possible to trick my personal computer into thinking it is on the same network as my work machine, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that.
I'm not able to reconfigure the router settings at my office at-will, so solutions that involve reconfiguring a router are probably out. I can get ports created for me if need be, but I can't significantly reconfigure the router s at my office. Everything works the way I want it. However, once I am truly remote, meaning I'm no longer connected to the same wifi network as my work machine, I lose the ability to stream audio, because VNC does not support audio.
This could be a very simple issue - I might just need to configure SoundFly to be looking at a different port - maybe?
I'm also very new to this and might be misunderstanding how these technologies work. I've been investigating premium screen sharing applications but can't seem to find any that aren't based on VNC. And VNC does not stream audio, under any circumstances, from what I've been able to figure out. Google Chrome's screen sharing extension perhaps? Does this extension stream audio? I've tried setting up an internet radio station, where the host computer is "broadcasting" and I'm the only listener tuned in, but there's a lag several minutes long and it just doesn't work.
As I've mentioned, I can get everything to work when the machines are physically in the same office. The big hurdle is getting the audio from my work machine to flow across the internet to my laptop. I've seen info about creating a SSH tunnel, but I'm just not sure how that works or what that offers.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Any experiences or tricks that anyone has uncovered would be so hugely helpful. Posted on May 2, AM. May 30, AM in response to greenie In response to greenie I would not be surprised if their Mac client like most of their Mac software is crippled in this area.
With regards to an RDP compatible server for the Mac - Microsoft do not do one but have a look at these. I would not normally recommend making RDP access possible directly over the Internet.
