Running VNC on Solaris

I can't seem to find where it says this, but I'm
pretty sure that the display number must be
the first argument to vncserver.  I use the
following csh script to make sure this happens.
I don't no what the "-nolisten local" does, but
someone on the mailing list suggested this
when I couldn't get vncviewer to connect.

#!/bin/csh -f
echo -nolisten local $* \
    | sed -e 's+\(.*\)\(:[0-9]*\)\(.*\)+ \2 \1 \3+' \
    | xargs vncserver

Hope it works for you.
