Abstract

Virtual Network Computing (VNC) clients are used to support remote desktop connectivity based on the Remote Framebuffer (RFB) Protocol [RFC6143]. It is often desirable to integrate such functionality with other software. However, the lack of a standard method for specifying VNC client parameters has limited such integration.
