One more time, StartingVNC at boot in linux

I didn't finish my response sorry (I get in too big of a hurry)!!

There is no need for passwords.  If your user can log in via the GUI
from the physical console, that is what you will see once it is setup
correctly,  a GUI login prompt based on the display manager you are
using. There is no additional need for user specific configuration at
all for inetd mode.

What display manager are you using?  I don't have RH 6.2 running
anymore so I may not be as much help here as with other versions I am
running.

Hi,

I have done all the modifications, except as I am on RH6.2, I cannot do
3 or
5b. However, all others are done.

When I go from the VNC Viewer, I try to connect to port 63 (5963),
1280x1024x16, but I go no further. No error, no password box, nothing.
Do I
not need to run the password script as someone first?

Your help is still appreciated.

Regards.
Dave Colliver.
