VNC Viewer - client to access remote desktop service ---------------------------------------------------- This package provides a VNC-client for OS/2 Presentation Manager, you can connect to a VNC-server somewhere in the network and display its content in a window.

VNC Server - graphical desktop sharing -------------------------------------- VNC Server transmits a duplicate of the remote computer's display screen to the viewer. It also interprets commands coming from the viewer and carries them out on the remote computer. VNC Server supports UltraVNC advanced features such as file transfering and chat. This program based on libvncserver library licensed under the GPL. Command line switches for VNC Server -s <properties-open properties-close show hide shutdown> -s - Send command to the running instanse. properties-open - Open properties notebook. properties-close - Close properties notebook. show - Show system tray/floating icon. hide - Hide system tray/floating icon. shutdown - Shutdown server. Web Browser Access Users may access their desktops from any computer with any modern HTML5-capable Web browser, without installing any software on the client computer. VNC displays a desktop within a browser window uses noVNC Open Source VNC client. noVNC is a browser based VNC client implemented using HTML5 Canvas and WebSockets. Enabling encryption To enable encryption for WebSockets (for browser-based clients such as noVNC), open the Properties notebook and go to the General page 2 "Encryption". Specify a files that contains SSL certificate and private key. Using Secure Websockets: https://github.com/LibVNC/libvncserver#using-secure-websockets Keyboard Map Utility -------------------- Client sends keyboard events to the server. The key itself is specified using the "keysym" values defined by the X Window System, even if the client or server is not running the X Window System. VNC Server and VNC Viewer provided by this package use correspondence tables to translate system keyboard events to "keysym" values and back. Usualy two tables are used: "local" table for national keys and additional "general" table for standart keyboard. Keyboard Map Utility is a program to edit correspondence tables. Tables are held in text files .\keysym\*.xk . VNC Server and VNC Viewer will try to load files in order: user.xk, NNN.xk, general.xk (where NNN is a system local page number). Each next loaded file complements common table in memory. user.xk - top priority, it can be used for your experiments or external non-standard keypads. When "local" table (NNN.xk) does not exist, VNC Server and VNC Viewer will try to use unicode-related "keysym" values for keys which generate characters. RFC 6143, "7.5.4. KeyEvent": "Modern versions of the X Window System handle keysyms for Unicode characters, consisting of the Unicode character with the hex 1000000 bit set." Adding support for a new language with Keyboard Map Utility: - Open (empty) local table: File -> Open -> Local table (NNN). - Record all national characters keys (Record -> Start - many keys). - Hold Shift and record all these keys again. - Stop recording. - Set correspond XK_xxxxx value for each event (Double click on records or press enter). - Save table: File -> Save. Note that not all other VNC clients/servers supports national keyboards. For more detailed information see RFC 6143, 7.5.4. KeyEvent. --- http://os2.snc.ru/product-VNC.html Andrey Vasilkin, 2017-2024
