Could you tell me how to block VNC clients' mouses and keyboards? It means that clients can only watch activities happening at the remote computer, not participate in.

UPDATE: Wil said that it depends on the VNC variant. In my situation, the remote computer is actually a Xen (or VMware, KVM) virtual machine, so I considered using the hypervisor's built-in VNC server. However, I haven't been obliged to use any specific one yet, so please feel free to suggest what you know.
