linuxvnc - export a tty to any VNC client
linuxvnc [ tty_number [ vnc args ] ]
You need root privileges, or at least be in the "tty" group, because it
reads /dev/vcsN and writes /dev/ttyN.
It follows the same idea as WinVNC, x11vnc or OSXvnc, i.e. it takes an
existing desktop and exports it via RFB (VNC), just that LinuxVNC
If you want to export another tty, specify it as ’tty_number’. You can
also pass VNC options to tune what encodings are used for the VNC
session. You can read x11vnc man page for more information on this.
