Viewers of desktops with TightVNC Server 2.7.7 do not display the desktop with proper orientation when the monitor on the server is rotated into portrait mode. This includes the TightVNC 2.7.7 viewer, Java Viewer, and Remote Ripple Viewer for Android.
Remotely changing the desktop orientation is not a solution because it would rearrange the desktop's icons and provide the wrong orientation for those viewing the server's monitor. The only viewer that I have found that can display the rotated desktop is VNC Viewer Plus from realvnc.com because that viewer has a Rotate Clockwise button to rotate the desktop orientation.
It seem to me that the solution is to have the TightVNC Server recognize the desktop's orientation and present the desktop to the Viewers with the proper orientation, rather than change all the viewers. If there is a technical reason why this can not be done then provide the viewers with a Rotate Clockwise button to rotate the viewed desktop orientation.
