     8== Introduction ==
     9Version 2.2 adds support for VNC connections with the [/wiki/Desktop desktop mode].

     14== Usage ==
     15
     16To listen for RFB / VNC connections on a specific port use:
     17{{{
     18xpra start-desktop --start=xterm --bind-rfb=0.0.0.0:5900
     19}}}
     20(5900 is the default port for VNC servers)
     21
     22
     23Alternatively, you can start a session with a TCP socket and it will be upgraded to RFB when required by the client:
     24{{{
     25xpra start-desktop --start=xterm --bind-tcp=0.0.0.0:5900
     26}}}
     27}}}
     28
     29
     30{{{#!div class="box"
     31== Clients ==
     32
     33You should be able to connect using any VNC compliant client.
     34ie:
     35{{{
     36vncviewer host
     37}}}
     38
     39Note: this mode is sub-optimal, use the xpra native protocol for better performance and features.
