Oh, I misunderstood what you wanted. I thought you wanted to share an X
session between two computers (which you can use x0rfbserver for). What
you were correct. I did want to interact with an existing session. I
tried to get RFB to work a few times, but was unsuccessful. Xnest does pretty
much what i'm look for. Except i can't connect to an existing session and i
can't make it full screen it will.
you want is very easy. Just use the regular X server,
not Xnest, and start
it on a different VT than normal:
X -geometry 1280x1024 -query removteXserver :1 vt8
Then you can switch using ctrl-alt-f7 and ctrl-alt-f8.
This is actually what i have
been doning, but i'm getting tired of hiting
ctl-atl-f8 and waiting for the monitor to change modes. This is why i was
looking for something that could tunnel into an existing X session (on
another VT) and display its contents within a window.
