I'm connecting via ssh to an Ubuntu server that has a physical display attached.

I'd like the physical display of the server to remain locked while I'm connected remotely.

Is this possible? How?

Also, is there a way to automatically unlock the screen for the VNC session, which is made from localhost via an ssh tunnel?



A vnc server doesn't have to be attached to a physical display. My recommendation is to start a vnc server on :1 on your remote Linux box and connect to that.
