On the viewer login screen, click options and there's a Full Screen box to click.

Happy New Year.

Hi there all and thank you for your answer however that just maximised the sceen of the vcn console, the problem was I did not get the entire desktop in the VCN console.

I have managed to answer my own question after reading up and playing around a bit, basically, depending on the Linux distro you are using you need to enable the share desktop option which can be found under system, remote desktop, you however have to be root. so I now have my gravy, thnaks again for your help

cheers

Why not use X windows via ssh connection?
It's easy. Just ssh -X [your IP address] and then type your X program name in your console. that's it.
