Setting up desktop sharing using vnc:

pkg_add (or pkg install) x11vnc

FreeBSD:

pkg install tigervnc

OpenBSD:

pkg_add ssvnc

Heed security warnings.

Create x11vnc password, use ssh tunneling, etc. if on an open network.

For window managers with mod/windows key, fullscreen seems to work but windowed does not (I think).
