FWIW, you can configure it to always ask for the hostname, even if no SSH session is detected. This would cause it to trigger on your local xterm running inside the VNC session. The man page mentions setting this option in /etc/molly-guard/rc. Not sure if that’s what you had in mind?

The alternative (default value) is to only ask if it detects running inside a SSH session.
