question regarding realvnc for unix (sol 9)

Jeff,

	I am at a command prompt and to exit the telnet session I simply type exit.  The vncserver is still running (or appears to be) and I verified this by closing the vncviewer that goes gray and then opening it again.  Someone told me that I might have to remove/reinstall vncserver as root so it sets itself up as a daemon but it should have done that when I initially installed that as a sysadmin.

Sincerely,

Matthew,

Is the vncserver script exiting?  In other words, when you try to log
out from your telnet session, are you at a command prompt?  Or, do you
need to take some relatively drastic action in order to get back to a
command prompt?
