Re: x0vncserver HowTo

Finally getting to this and am having difficulties.

If I read the man page on x11vnc it tells me to use -unixpw but it never lists it as a valid option.   The FAQ locate here indicates that I should run "x11vnc -unixpw -display WAIT:cmd=/tmp/display" (where /tmp/display finds the current display name, script was copied from the page mentioned above) but I get an error indicating -unixpw is not a valid option, see below:

19/01/2007 17:19:38 x11vnc version: 0.8.2 lastmod: 2006-07-12
19/01/2007 17:19:38 initialize_screen: fb_depth/fb_bpp/fb_Bpl 24/32/2560
19/01/2007 17:19:38 *** unrecognized option(s) ***
19/01/2007 17:19:38     [1]  -unixpw
19/01/2007 17:19:38 For a list of options run: x11vnc -opts
19/01/2007 17:19:38 or for the full help: x11vnc -help

x11vnc -help mentions -unixpw as an option but does not state it as one.  Am I missing something?  I am trying to run this at the command line so I can test it.

Thank you for your help,

You probably aren't going to like it much under VNC either
then, unless it is just for an occassional remote check on

Yes, occassional use  but on the fly.  Say an Engineer is working on a project and then leaves for home.  They stay logged into their workstation.  Now say they want to work from home on the same project, the very one they have up.  They want to be able to connect to their display remotely.

All processes normally stop when you log out unless they
do something to dissociate from the terminal.  Connecting
with vnc and disconnecting don't count as logins, though.
Can you be more specific about what you want to happen?

The Engineer stay logged in.

I'm off on vacation this week but when I get back in the office I will try the x11VNC that was suggested.  It sounds more along the lines of what I need.
