I've created the file /etc/X2.hosts containing hosts with access for display :5
From the user appdev  --> vncserver :5

Now I can connect from my station to VNC on :5, I can run xclock or other graphical programs on display :5 as user appdev (not root)
but I have the same error on the log:

----------------------------------------------
xrdb: A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
1356-613 xrdb: can't open file '/home/appdev/.Xresources'
exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program twm because of the following errors:
        0509-130 Symbol resolution failed for twm because:

----------------------------------------------

So it couldn't run twm. As result on vncviewer I am unable to move windows, to focus on a window, the icon menu does not appear, in other words I can use a single terminat window in VNCviewer

Any ideea ?

thanks
