If the vncserver's resolution is larger than can be displayed on your remote PC, you'll get scroll-bars to scroll around it (this makes using it a PITA though). Just experiment with different settings until you find one you are comfortable with.


Thank you for the thanks, but it's faster just to click the "Thumb-up" icon at the bottom of my post.
Have fun.

I think im confused. Tell me if this doesnt sound like what I should be doing...

-My box is up and running at home.
-I get to work and I use TightVNC on Windows XP to connect.
-When i do this the screen (my desktop at home) is 800x600.
-If I go to my preferences on my box at home that is the highest resolution it goes to. (800x600)
-If I am at home I can go to the same prefences and can set it to 1024x768 or even higher...its defaulting to something like 1980x something because it hooked up to my tv.
-If I try to change the resolution from 800x600 to anything else my connection drops and I can no longer connect with tightvnc. I can still ssh in though.

I think i have either skipped some step in getting this all setup or im drawing a blank about whats going on here. Any clues? Suggestions?
