VNC Viewer on Firefox web
Running from a web browser
The VNC servers also contain a small web server. If you connect to this with a web browser, you can download the Java version of the viewer, and use this to view the server. You can then see your desktop from any Java-capable browser, unless you are using a proxy to connect to the web. The server listens for HTTP connections on port 5800+display number. So to view display 2 on machine
ADDRESS, you would point your web browser at:
The applet will prompt you for your password, and should then display the desktop.
Running as an application
You can run the viewer outside a browser using, for example:
java -jar vncviewer ADDRESS:2
The precise command line will depend on your particular Java installation.

I want to be able to connect VNC Viewer with Firefox using the IP number and the password from the computer that I want to see the desktop!
The problems is: I just can't. What do I have to install, besides Java to be able to connect using Firefox? I alredy have de VNCViewer installed with Wine but I wanted to use de FileTransfer opition that is only available when you acess it using the web VNC.

Amanda almost 10 yearsThanks for the reply! I have tried to type de http:// at my wed browser but it is unable to connect. The reason is because the server of the IP machine i trying to see is taking to long to reply. But when I open the VNC Viewer using the wine application it works fine... I already have Java7 installed! thanks
