NAME
       vncserver - a wrapper to	launch an X server for VNC.

SYNOPSIS
       vncserver  [:display]  [-geometry  widthxheight]	 [-depth depth]	[-pix-
       elformat	rgbNNN|bgrNNN] [-name desktop-name] [Xvnc-options...]

       vncserver -kill :display

       vncserver -help

DESCRIPTION
       vncserver is a wrapper script for Xvnc, the free	X server for VNC (Vir-
       tual  Network  Computing). It provides all capabilities of a standard X
       server, but does	not connect to a display for  itself.	Instead,  Xvnc
       creates	a virtual desktop you can view or control remotely using a VNC
       viewer.

OPTIONS
       You can add Xvnc	options	at the command line. They will be added	to the
       invocation  of  Xvnc  without changes. The options provided by the vnc-
       server itself are as follows:

       :display
	      The display number to use. If omitted,  the  next	 free  display
	      number is	used.

       -geometry widthxheight
	      Set desktop width	and height.

       -depth depth
	      Set  the	colour	depth  of  the	visual to provide, in bits per
	      pixel. Must be a value between 8 and 32.

       -pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN
	      Set colour format	for pixels representation. The viewer  can  do
	      the  conversion  to  any other pixel format, but it is faster if
	      the depth	and pixel format of the	server	is  the	 same  as  the
	      equivalent values	on the viewer display.

       -name string
	      This specifies the name of the desktop.

       -kill :display
	      Stops the	session	running	on the specified display.

       -help  Prints a short usage notice to stderr.

EXAMPLES
       vncserver
	      Invokes  Xvnc  on	 the  next available display and with suitable
	      defaults.

       vncserver :1
	      Invokes Xvnc on display :1.

       vncserver -geometry 800x600 -depth 16 :1
	      Invokes Xvnc on display :1 with desktop size of  800x600	pixels
	      and color	depth of 16 bits per pixel.

       vncserver -kill :1
	      Shuts down Xvnc server on	display	:1.

FILES

	      System-wide configuration	file of	TightVNC Server.

       $HOME/.vnc/tightvncserver.conf
