I have installed the product VNC Server in an AIX 4.3.0 server following the
instructions in the document How To Install VNC On AIX (Joshua Kuo, August
2001)

I have the vncviewer in a PC with Windows 2000 professional and when I try to
take control of my AIX server, I get a gray desktop whith a cursor


Q16 I connected to my Unix VNC server and I just see a grey desktop with a
cursor.
After the vncserver script has started the Xvnc server, it then runs your
~/.vnc/xstartup script. By default this will try to start the twm window
manager, but if twm isn't on your path, or if you prefer something else, you
can edit xstartup. The log file may also give you clues about what is
happening.

I have tried to use the xstartup file with the twm, mwm and dtwm commands

#!/bin/sh
PATH=$PATH:/usr/dt/bin
if [ -f /usr/dt/bin/Xsession ]
then
    export XSTATION=1 DTXSERVERLOCATION=local
    Xsession &
else
    xrdb $HOME/.Xdefaults
    xsetroot -solid grey
    xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
    mwm &
fi

I have used the path command:

PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/lpp/X11/bin

However, from the AIX Server I could take control of Windows 2000 and it
worked correctly
 
 
I wonder if you can help me?
Thanks in advanced
