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.
