I discovered VNC and i find it SUPER! Nevertheless, i ve some little pb:

-has somebody succeded in compiling under ultrix 4.4 ? (if yes : how)

-is there a way to have support of openGL under SGI (a lot of SGI binary
use it): even "jot" makes a core-dump!

-i ve compiled it under DEC-UNIX 4.x and it works very well, but a
question : the copy/paste works on the VNC window (from an xterm to
another) but not from the vnc window to another program under win32 (i
use VNC client for win32 under winNT4): any solution?

-about vnc server mac-OS / Ms-window : it seems that we can launch the
server under win32 even if no one is connected: is true only for NT or
for win9x and WinNT?

I plan to use VNC for 2 task: 

-first as an X-emulator for some scientific prog we use, the server
would run on unix machine and client would only be mac /win32.
Who has experience with that ?

-second as a tool for repairing the "micros" (using it as timbuktu pro)
so, will there be one day a vnc server for mac 68K (i hope), is there a
way to start automatically the vnc server at startup (for win32/macOs):
not only launching the binary but launching the service?

and finally on unix,when the server is launched i prefer to have the
password taken from a list (like /etc/passwd) and not to be typed by the
user: is there a way without adding something like NIS,...

sorry for beeing long, and great "bonjour" from south of france where
the sun is shinning today...

There is worse than to have not succeded :  Not to have  tried !
