The problems I was having getting x11vnc to work were apparently caused
by a missing/incorrect -display and -auth parameters. As soon as I set
those correctly x11vnc ran and I could connect remotely.

chore I decided to write a small perl script to do it for me. I
documented the procedure on the LTSP wiki here:
Hopefully this will help someone.
