Did you actually read all answers to your posts by other people?
You posted several times regarding remote X session over ssh, vnc, etc.
And I had told you what is the difference between a VNC server and a
x0rfbserver. Other people also recommended x11vnc as a better
replacement for x0rfbserver. Both x0rfbserver and x11vnc let you share
your :0 display on *nix and hence one of them is what you need.
