Re: HOWTO: Control the gnome VNC vino-server from the command line
I know it's digging up an old thread, but one could install a windows xserver (cygwin has one, or Xming is good) and enable X forwarding in putty. It's even easier if your local machine is also linux:
Then you could open vino-preferences remotely. vino-preferences is a simple enough GUI that even across a pretty slow connection it still responds decently.
$ ssh -XC user@host
EDIT: I meant uppercase C for compression. Good for slower speed connections. Lowercase c will cause an error. Sorry. Thanks to srfc21 for pointing that out.
