How to setup multiple simultaneous access to x11vnc session


From man x11vnc


          VNC  display is shared, i.e. more than one viewer can connect at
          the same time (default off).


          Exit after the first successfully connected viewer  disconnects,
          opposite of -forever. This is the Default.


          Keep  listening for more connections rather than exiting as soon
          as the first client(s) disconnect. Same as -many

So you probably want -shared -forever

    I have setup an x11vnc server on a computer and I am able to access it with no issues via remote desktop clients. But I am only able to access it, one at a time (i.e. on my laptop but not on both my laptop and on my tablet at the same time).

    Is there a switch I need to pass when I start the vncserver for this or is it just a limitation of x11vnc that I missed?
