Some of my VNC extensions to better support virtualization

  • PointerTypeChange - This extension allows for a relative mouse mode. This mode is useful when the server does not know exactly where the pointer is located on the screen.
  • NameChange - This extension allows the name of the display to be changed at any time during the VNC session. This is useful for supporting display multiplexing.
  • PixelFormatChange - This extension fixes an annoying race condition in the VNC protocol.
  • ExtendedClientMessages - This extension enables the client and server to negotiate a set of client messages that can be sent. It is very similar to the use of pseudo-encodings to send additional server messages.
