Using VNC

  • Once you have connected to the remote system (e.g. using vncviewer remotehost) you will see a screen of the same size (in pixels) as the target machine's screen.

  • If the remote screen won't fit in the available desktop space there will be scrollbars.

  • To go fullscreen press F8 and select "Fullscreen". If the remote screen is smaller than the local screen, the remote screen will be centered with a black border around it. If the remote screen is larger than the local screen, you may be able to scroll by bumping the screen edge (it doesn't always work because it is non-standard use of X).

  • Here we will do a live demo
