I am trying to use your project with an HTML5 based vnc client (NoVNC But everytime i try to initialize a connection, i get error:
Only version 3.3, 3.7, and 3.8 of the RFB Protocol are supported.

Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I have read, A WebSocket server is needed to translate the Browser requests to TCP packets.
That is clearly stated on the NoVNC page:
Unless you are using a VNC server with support for WebSockets connections (such as x11vnc/libvncserver, QEMU, or PocketVNC), you need to use a WebSockets to TCP socket proxy.
As NVNC does not support WebSockets at the moment, you can try using websockify as described here:
I will try to implement a WebSocket server for the future releases, but for now, performance is a priority.
