Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
In earlier versions, the TigerVNC tool started with the "-listen tcp" option by default. A later update changed this behavior, and TigerVNC started with the "-nolisten" option by default instead. As a consequence, exporting a GUI application to a VNC display from a remote host did not work by default. With this update, TigerVNC starts with "-listen tcp" by default again.
