hi all,

Is there any other way to record a VNC session which is running in linux without using any tool ?

I have not seen a recording option in VNC. I usually run the VNC client in Windows and then use Camtasia to do the recording. I imagine that there are Linux apps that record the screen, but I have not looked into them. (Yes, I know you said "without using any tool". Also note that I assumed you meant recording the screen interaction, and not recording the packets sent between the VNC client and server.)

Is it possible to write a java application to record the vnc session which is running in browser?
