Sharing single VNC session between two users

Dear All,

I would like to share same vnc session between two users, as both users need to look at the screen in order to make few observations.

Is this possible ?

Yes, It is very much possible. You can take two approaches, connect to the vnc one at a time n if one gets disconnected just reconnect else you can simply enable shared connection in the vnc server config. Go to the options of VNC server , there u'll find a sharing tab , just click on treat every new connection as shared.

In the vncviewer client. click on options. There is a property to enable sharing. Check that box.
You need to do it everytime. Also everyone connecting to the vnc session should do that.

Thanks for your Advice !!

I do not have Server side hold, I was using old Vnc Client, I downloaded latest VNC client where Remote sharing option exists.

Thanks Again..
