Apologies if this is in the archives, but have searched for a couple of hours.

Running Debian 2.2 and latest versions of vnc.

Linux box viewer comes up.

Win95 box takes long time for 'initial screen loading', displays grey pixels
and large x cursor.  Mouse operative, but only allows options/exit menu.  No
keyboard response.

The log follows:

The viewer is not shared.  If Win95 viewer is up starting the Linux box viewer
will close it.

Thanks for your help,
