tightvnc/vnc through the web


I have the tightvnc/vnc server running. I cna remote logon throuhg a web browser through port 5900. The problems is the web browser logon is using the desktop display (I belive display:0)

I want the vncserver through the web opening up naother virtual display and not the desktop display.

how do i change it configuration?

If you have the vnc server setup to handle more than one display, use a different port.

5900 = display:0 (desktop)
5901 = display:1
5902 = display:2

and so on...

Should work like the following:

If you set to display :2, then you simply use port 5902.

In other words, the tightvnc vncserver is smart enough to tie displays to ports.

Try that and see if it works...
