How to start vncserver in view only mode?


I need to share my desktop with many peers for presentation. I'm using tigervnc on fedora 11 KDE. I also configured the server so that the viewers can connect through http urls (https://hostname:5801).

I dont find any option in man command of vncserver or any configuration file that would allow me to start the server in view mode rathar than default full control mode. Pls. suggest.
