About sharing VNC sessions with another user

This page contains:

You can share a VNC session with another user, specify some access privileges, and terminate the sharing session. The new user must be a registered iPlant user.


Sharing a VNC session grants access to another person via VNC. Only give access to trusted people.
When you grant access to another person via VNC, the two of you share the same user session and login, as well as all of your user account privileges. Although you each can control what is done in the session, each person in the shared session sees the actions performed by the others who are sharing the same session.

  2. In the VNC window, click the VNC Server (Virtual Mode) icon in the upper right of the window:
