I use sshplus to handle vnc connection, using a command line argument such as:

vncviewer host:port -FullColour -passwd /home/.vnc/passwd

Everything works, but I'd like to have its window automatically open maximized. Moreover, it should be great if the connected machine's screen could fit this window, but I suppose this is a vncviewer related issue.

Solved with "Window Rules" plugin in Compiz Config Settings Manager.

Added class=Vncviewer in "Maximized" section, "Matches" tab.
