The following operands are supported:
[server][::port|:display]
Specifies the VNC server to connect to. The VNC server can be either a hostname, or an IP address. If the server is an IPv6 address, it must be enclosed by square brackets. The address can optionally be followed by two colons (::) and the VNC port number, or alternatively by one colon (:) and the display where Vinagre should run. If a port is not specified, default value of 5900 will be used. If the value is lower than 1024, 5900 will be added to it. For example, ":0" means "5900" and ":1" means ":5901". If only a port is specified, but not the hostname, localhost will be assumed. Possible values for the display are between 0 and 1024. If a display number greater than 1024 is specified, it will be assumed to be a port. Note that you can't specify the port and the display at the same time.
