https://bbs.archlinux.org – I am using xvfb with x11vnc and ssh. I tried vncserver before but it could not handle i3 (no xkb extension or something like that).On remote machine (under screen / tmux so it won't dissapear if i'm disconnected):Xvfb :1 -nolisten tcp -screen 0 1280x1024x16 DISPLAY=:1 i3 x11vnc -display :1 -localhostOn local machine:ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900 (or putty: connection -> ssh -> tunnels)This gives you encrypted persistent vnc session. On reconnect you need to start x11vnc once again. hiciu https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?id=39947 2012-10-24T12:00:26Z (HowTos)
