Having fun on April 1st with SSH
Authored by: Hanji on Mar 31, '03 04:01:51PM
If you can install VNC on the victim's computer, you can also have a lot of fun by taking over their desktop and mouse :-D
OSXvnc supports launching the server from a shell, so you can launch it over SSH (You could probably even manage to install it entirely over ssh, although it could be tricky), so you can just launch it when you want and kill it when you're done.

Installing/starting vnc
Authored by: extra88 on Mar 31, '03 05:53:24PM

Installation should be easy, if you can SSH you can SFTP. I'm pretty sure all you need is OSXvnc-server which is installed in /usr/locall/bin by default. To start it, use this command:

/usr/local/bin/OSXvnc-server -rfbauth PASSWORD -rfbport 5900 -dontdisconnect -alwaysshared -nodimming &

where "PASSWORD" is the password you want to use when connecting with a VNC client. The switches after the "5900" are optional but the "&" is kind of important because it tells the command you're running to run in the background. Without the "&" OSXvnc-server runs in the foreground of your SSH session and you'll have to open a new one to do any other commands.
