x11vnc is great, remmina is great (can scale the client window, no matter the vnc server resolution it will fit on the client screen)
manpage remmina: remmina.man.txt
when the user followed the instructions here on how to setup vnc server on GNU Linux
connecting to the server with remmina might still fail with: “rfbProcessClientNormalMessage: read: Connection reset by peer”
this happens when the client vnc software has a different color map (8 bpp, 16 bpp, 24 bpp, 32 bpp) set
than the vnc server offers
run this command on server to see the settings of vnc:
xdpyinfo -display :0
