    How do you display the idle timeout setting for vnc?


    Whether vncconfig or Xvnc, how do you know what the idle timeout setting is? Is there a way to display the current setting? I can't find online anywhere on the command line used to display the configuration. And I don't see any configuration files for this either. This is on CentOS 6.7.

    I am unfamiliar with Xvnc, but googling it brought up this page.
    https://archive.realvnc.com/products.../man/Xvnc.html

    In the parameters section, look for "IdleTimeout"
    So the command should be

    Xvnc -IdleTimeout 11111

    I don't think that is the command to show what the current setting is. I want to be able to see the setting without changing it.
