Access a running X session via x11vnc

Thu 13 November 2008

I am using FreeNX but here is a solution to access a running X session with x11vnc.

* install the package:

$ sudo zypper install x11vnc

* ssh to remote machine and:

$ x11vnc -display :0

* ok, now on local machine:

$ vncviewer your_remote_ip:0

For more details and some comments (password option, ...) check the following link and try: man x11vnc
