I am running VNC server on our RAS server, which is also NT, but 
version 3.51.  I wasn't sure if it would work, since the install 
claims that Service Pack 3 was needed, so thus I assumed NT 4 only 
but it seemed to install and runs fine even with RAS running as a 
service. Can someone tell me though if it is possible to run VNC 
server as a service in 3.51, or will this only work in 4?  I would 
much rather do that then have to login all the time and remain logged 
in, like I do now.
