Starting vnc on Display 0 ( local display ) from a remote ssh session

i.e. You wnet home need your desktop have ssh no vnc !! Here is the easy solution..

Install x11vnc.

$ DISPLAY=localhost:0 x11vnc &

connect to the display using vnc et voila !

BTW Teamviewer also USED TO WORK but no longer in ver 8 so thanks VNC for not being obsolete..
