you can have as many different VNC (and X11) Sessions on the same
server as you want. You could protect your VNC Session with a password,
so that you are the only one able to access it.
The VisualWorks documentation says, that it is possible to run the VM
headless. Alexander tried to put some scripts together, but we gave up
because of some very strange bugs when running VisualWorks headless.
We are basically running all our Smalltalk server-applications in VNC
Sessions. Think of the advantages: this gives the power to update and
maintain the application without having to shut-down the server.
