TightVNC on Solaris 8

I actually took a different approach but you pointed
me in the right direction. Thanks!

What I ended up doing is setting the ownership and
perms on Xvnc the same way SUN does for Xsun. Its more
secure that way.


The reason your having to reset your directory perms
is because /tmp is a virtual file system and gets
cleared everytime the system reboots.

If you reset the perms on Xvnc as I did you won't have
to deal with that anymore, and you'll be able to run
Xvnc as a non-root user.

Thank again!
