x11vnc allows one to view remotely and interact with real X displays (i.e. a display corresponding to a physical monitor, keyboard, and mouse) with any VNC viewer. In this way it plays the role for Unix/X11 that WinVNC plays for Windows.
It has built-in SSL/TLS encryption and RSA authentication, including VeNCrypt; UNIX account and password login support; server-side scaling; single port HTTPS/HTTP and VNC; Zeroconf service advertising; and TightVNC and UltraVNC file-transfer. It has also been extended to work with non-X devices: webcams and TV tuner capture devices, embedded Linux systems such as Qtopia Core, and natively on Mac OS X Aqua/Quartz.

NOTE: For the x11vnc source code file releases at Sourceforge (i.e.
