Hi there!
 I'm new til VNC and have recently installed:
 on a RH 5.0 Linux using the Metrolink X-server.
 Problem:  Starting 'vcnserver' in unix with my user name 'Rettvin_aage'
 gives following msg.
 "xauth: (argv):1 bad display name "Rettvin_aage :1" in add command"
 When trying to access the vncserver over TCP/IP from the Windows-VNCViewer
 client, all I see after login is a gray blank screen with the X-cross. No
 other response is observed.
 Does anyone know what's up here!  Any help appreciated.
 Best regards
