Hi,

Not being a linux guru (yet), I am not fully conversant with what you are
saying. If you could rephrase it for the page, then I will be happy to put
it up. Also, if you know of ways to get exactly the same thing working with
other distro's and versions of linux, that would be appreciated. I think I
understand what you are saying, but knowing me, I wouldn't write it in an
easily understandable way. I nothing comes forward, then I will have a go at
writing it.

I have had someone come to me already for a similar working solution on
Solaris. can anyone provide me with this?

I have got an Oregon Scientific Osaris PDA. I don't have any network card or
anything special, apart  from the RS232 or Infra Red. Is there a way to use
VNC (client or Server) on this? (The OS is epoc). Slightly off topic, but I
will probably need to do it, I would like to use the PDAs terminal program
to connect to my Linux box using the RS232. I saw the answer to this in a
computer magazine, but don't know where it is. Can anyone email me privately
with that one? This would be another tip for my site.

Regards.
Dave Colliver.

> Better start than me :). you may want to add some information about the
difference between teh Command line started VNC and the -inetd VNC. One is
that when using -inetd you get remote login that is identical to a console
login. The other big difference is that -inetd use the normal xinitrc file
instead of xstartup that is use when VNC is run from the command line.
