Say Bert, 

Isn't this slightly backwards?  When I use VNC, I run the viewer on my 
workstation to see the screen of the machine running the server.  So, to send 
your screen to my machine, you launch the server on your machine.  Meanwhile, 
I have the viewer running in listen mode on my machine.  When your server 
comes up, it automatically connects to my viewer and I see what's on your 

In David's case, as you mentioned, he would have all the workstations running 
the viewer with the -listen option, (sitting in the background?), and then 
he'd launch the server and the clients would all pop the viewer and the 
students could see his desktop.  I haven't actually done this, just my 
interpretation of the docs.
