Hi, Seiji.

You should use the font server for VNC. Here is how to set it up on HP-UX:

First: start the X Font Server
- in /etc/rc.config.d/xfs and set "RUN_X_FONT_SERVER=1". If it's already set
to "1", then you may skip the next step
- execute 
	/sbin/init.d/xfs start

Second: instruct vncserver to start Xvnc with X Font Server
- in the vncserver script, add the following a line to the end of "$cmd .="
commands (cca line 155)
	$cmd .= " -fp tcp/127.0.0.1:7000";

Now you can execute vncserver.

If you do not have root priviledges, you can start X Font Server with
command 
	  /usr/bin/X11/xfs -port 7000 -daemon -quiet_if_addrinuse
and then start Xvnc with command 
	vncserver  -fp tcp/127.0.0.1:7000
