VNC on SuSE 7.3

I have found the problem; the line in inetd.conf read:

vnc-800x600x24 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/local/bin/Xvnc -inetd -query
-localhost -once -geometry 800x600 -depth 24

Now it says

vnc-800x600x24 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/Xvnc -inetd -query
[servername] -once -geometry 800x600 -depth 24

and it works. Sorry for wasting your time.

thanks

Mark

Sorry, I don't have any active Suse around to see details. What do `ipchains
-L` say? How about `/etc/rc.d/init.d/ipchains status`.

Those are some basic firewalling commands. Search the howtos and manual
pages for details.
