TigerVNC Viewer connect to same workspace/desktop?

Hello,

I'm sorry that I don't know how to correctly state my problem (if I knew this a google-search would probably reveal much), but I'm trying to paraphrase it:

I want to use VNC to remotely show to an other person how certain things work. That is, when I connect via VNC, I want to control the same workspace or desktop the one on "the other end" does see, so they can comprehend what I'm doing. Sadly, when I'm connecting, I see just the (Xfce) Desktop but it's like an extra workspace. I tried setting the workspace count to 0 -though I didn't expect that to work. Do I need to change the

systemctl start vncserver@:DESKTOPNUM

? Or ain't that possible (like ssh can't connect to the same session)? If so, is there an alternate protocol? I'm running the latest fedora desktop Xfce-spin.

I'ld appreciate any help
