The 58xx ports fire up a java version of the VNC viewer so you can
use VNC inside a web browser.

um ... so the 58xx ports are listening specifically only for
java-based VNC viewers that are being invoked from within a browser?
No, it's a java-implemented http proxy.
It's in the docs.


what you wrote above is a bit confusing since it sounds like you're
saying that the java VNC viewer is running on the *server* side.
It is.
