This piqued my curiously and I just skimmed a few vnc* man pages.
With some creative hacking & redirection -- can I allow a windowz java
enabled browser as a vnc-client into my FC3 box using existing ports and
I'm thinking about (apache+enabled home directories) handle the HTTP
portion through :443 & ssh handle the RFB ??
can I do this with a shell script & few config files -- or do I have go
The short answer would be great -- I'm not going to waste my time if I
can't make this work with a shell script.
