I tried out the new version of VNC (4.0) and I have some troubles with that:
I try to start a vncserver on a SuSE 9.0 linux box as:
vncserver :2 -securitytypes=none
In the file ~/.vnc/linux:2.log I find:
Unrecognized option: securitytypes=none
use: X [:<display>] [option]
-a # mouse acceleration (pixels)
-ac disable access control restrictions
-audit int set audit trail level
-auth file select authorization file
bc enable bug compatibility
-nevershared never treat new clients as shared
-dontdisconnect don't disconnect existing clients when a new
connection comes in (refuse new connection instead)
-localhost only allow connections from localhost
to the vnc ports. Use -nolisten tcp to disable
remote X clients as well.
-viewonly let clients only view the desktop
-interface ipaddr only bind to specified interface address
-inetd Xvnc is launched by inetd
xrdb: No route to host
xrdb: Can't open display 'linux:2'
xsetroot: unable to open display 'linux:2'
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: linux:2
twm: unable to open display "linux:2"
... and the vncserver does not start.
There is no securitytypes anywhere... while in the docs of Xvnc there is
My questions are:
What is wrong?
How can I start a VNC Server with no authentication?
What are the constraints starting it?
