I have a VNC server (x11vnc) configured to allow me to log into the machine at the local display (:0) via SSH tunnel, following the instructions here.
My question: is there a way to create the tunnel AND launch vncviewer with a single command/script?
Here's how I'm launching x11vnc from /etc/gdm/Init/Default:
x11vnc -localhost -nopw -ncache 0 -o /var/log/x11vnc.log -forever -bg
Edit: please note that in this way x11vnc starts from gdm, so that I can log into the local session myself.
