How is everyone doing.
I have searched the net (googled tons of sites) and read tons of faqs on
setting up Xvnc running on inetd so I can have CDE login when a user logs
to a box using vncviewer.
I know vncserver can be run when a user logs in, but I really need to see
CDE login prompt.
I have downloaded the aix rpm for Vncserver (via IBM's site and also
vnc-server from bullsfreeware.com
Can someone help me explain how to set it up properly
Here is what I have done,
Went to smitty tcpip -> further Configuration -> Server Network Services
-> Other Avialable Services -> Super Daemon (inetd) -> inetd Subservers ->
Add an inetd Subserver ->
So here now I do this
Internet Serice Name ---- vnc2
Transport Protocol ---- tcp
Socket Type ---- stream
Wait for Server to.. ---- nowait
User name ---- nobody
Service Program PATH name -- /usr/local/bin/Xvnc
Service Program Command Line ARGUEMENTS - /usr/local/bin/Xvnc -query
myboxname -once -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16
After that I figured /etc/services needs something open to
so here is what I did
and then I did
refresh -s inetd
-and also i rebooted the box to be sure
And now on my windows box I run vncviewer to myipaddress :5901 it says
failed to connect to server.
So can anyone help me out here - I would really appreciate it.
