    LXDE VNC Server

    Hello all.

    I am trying to get a VNC server to run inside LXDE on Ubuntu Server. I use some software on the server which I run under wine, but every attempt to start a VNC server on the current X session seems to start a new X session, no matter what I do.

    Just not sure what to do. I just want to be able to see the screen on the server; X/LXDE is running on the the server all the time.

    Any advice would be well received.

    George.

    Sorry to waste anyone's time.

    It turns out that the program x11vnc will do exactly this.

    how about using secure shell with x forwarding?

    ssh -c -X name@host

    Make sure X is running on your client. Windows there is Xming and putty work great.

    Once you connect with ssh just launch any application from the terminal and it will forward to the client pc's X display. Cheers!
