       vncserver   [:display]  [-geometry  widthxheight]  [-depth
       depth] [-pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN]  [-name  desktop-name]

       vncserver -kill :display

       vncserver -help


       vncserver  is a wrapper script for Xvnc, the free X server
       for VNC (Virtual Network Computing). It provides all capa­
       bilities of a standard X server, but does not connect to a
       display for itself.  Instead, Xvnc creates a virtual desk­
       top you can view or control remotely using a VNC viewer.


       You can add Xvnc options at the command line. They will be
       added to the  invocation  of  Xvnc  without  changes.  The
       options provided by the vncserver itself are as follows:

              The  display  number  to  use. If omitted, the next
              free display number is used.

       -geometry widthxheight
              Set desktop width and height.

       -depth depth
              Set the colour depth of the visual to  provide,  in
              bits per pixel. Must be a value between 8 and 32.

       -pixelformat rgbNNN|bgrNNN
              Set  colour  format  for pixels representation. The
              viewer can do the conversion  to  any  other  pixel
              format,  but  it  is  faster if the depth and pixel
              format of the server is the same as the  equivalent
              values on the viewer display.

       -name string
              This specifies the name of the desktop.

       -kill :display
              Stops the session running on the specified display.

       -help  Prints a short usage notice to stderr.


              Invokes Xvnc on the next available display and with
              suitable defaults.


       Original VNC was developed in AT&T Laboratories Cambridge.
       TightVNC additions was implemented by  Constantin  Kaplin­
       sky.  Many other people participated in development, test­
       ing and support.
