General tab > Connect Host: field

What is the purpose of this setting:

General tab > Connect Host: ____________ Port: 5500

Comments

  • The connect host field is for establishing connections in the reverse direction: from server to client. Typically this is used to circumvent the firewall or virus software on the server side.
  • What must I do to use this feature? Is there some way to make vnc wait for this kind of invitation? What specific version of vnc allows this and how do you do it?

    Thank you!
  • Answered my own question:

    xtightvncviewer -listen 0

    will wait for an incoming connection. I installed this easily with the package manager on Kubuntu (beerorkid.com repo? forget.)
