The VNC server will be added to the list to shadow. You may repeat the process by re-selecting the Add button and adding other VNC servers. Select the Finish button to create the display client when done. The interactive shadow can be turned off by un-selecting the Interactive Shadow checkbox. This will put the shadow in a “look but don’t touch” mode. Once the VNC Display Client is added to a terminal and the terminal is restarted the VNC Display Client will be available. If you have a single VNC server listed the display client will automatically show you that shadow. If you add multiple VNC servers to the list the VNC display client will present the menu with all the listed servers in it.
