I have done some digging in the Archive of mailings, and came across one
from 1998.  Have there been any advances in getting Xvnc and CDE to
interact like the Windows version interacts with the active users

We do not want to use this for Xwindowing as much as a remote admin

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!!

Yes this is right. It would be possible to add VNC support to a standard

XFree86 server, so that it operated exactly as you describe, but we have
plans to do so.

Of course, anything you run inside your VNC desktop is always accessible
via a
VNC viewer connected to your XFree86 X server.
