Excellent. I had tried this earlier, but I was getting a "cannot open display" error, which I thought was a connection issue to the server, but I later found out that I was logged into a terminal as root but into X as my regular username. I can now connect with the command line and get a full screen display. The only problem I'm having now is trying to exit vncviewer. What keyboard combo should I use? Thanks.
Edit: Nevermind. It's in the man page, who knew?
