Anthony, you can't post it to the list - it yanks mime attachments.  If you
want, email it to me and I will be quite happy to toss it up on our
webserver so people can access it.

As for usefulness: I don't know about Linux opinions, but I would kill for
that ability on WinVNC.  I suspect that Linux users will love it once they
try it.

Subject: question about proposed feature for Xvnc


: Hi,
:
: I am new to the list and hope to find some help
: with the following question.
:
: We were faced with a problem of using Xvnc to provide
: a single application to a significant number of users.
: We were trying to deploy an industrial application that
: would start every time a user connects to the Xvnc
: (via inetd) without asking the user to login through
: the XDM.
:
: In collaboration with Lee Allen <lee "at" leadtec.com>
: we have developed a patch for Xvnc. The patch adds
: a new command line option ("-startapp"), which should
: be used together with the "-inetd" option. Command
: specifies the application to be run by Xvnc once
: it starts up.
:
: In addition, code responsible for connection
: through inetd was modified to add support for
: SO_KEEPALIVE (to ensure that Xvnc shuts down once
: the peer client is gone)
:
: We tested the patch on our systems
:    - Linux,
:    - SCO Open Server 5.0.6
:
: We would like to solicit feedback about usefulness
: of this feature. If it is considered useful what
: are common ways of making this patch available?
: Is posting it to the list an acceptable practice?
: (it is only 23k).
:
: Best Regards,
: Anthony Oganesian
