Hmmm - apologies for repetition but it seems my followup was lost ...

I wanted to mention that it's probably a good idea to use a port other than the
default to avoid conflict with other servers which might be running eg vino. I
use "-rfbport 3389" as that port makes it through our firewall (it's the RDP
port). Also I should mention that the remote screen is unlocked and alive so
there are security concerns with this approach. Anyone know how to disable/lock
