nothing wrong with x11vnc, but different intentions Xvnc <> x11vnc

x11vnc - (VNC server for real X displays)
Xvnc   - an X server providing VNC connectivity

Xvnc is a virtual Display, can be started with the resolution and color
depth of the connecting client. Several of them running at the same time for
different users.

With the help of xrdp and Xvnc I'm able to connect to my pi from any 
windows pc without installing extra software. There are problems with 
international keymaps, most of them patched for de layout in my version, 
thats not perfect, but good enough for me.
