I run the vncserver in a new VM so that I can screenshare from... * multiple app VMs * VMs that can't access the conference site (i.e. bluejeans.com) or can't access the net at all * VMs that don't have vncserver installed, or don't have a plugin needed to screenshare My approach lowers security while screensharing. But the rest of the time, not screensharing, the VMs are running with normal firewall settings. I realize X11 is a weak link in what might be an otherwise secure desktop.
