The need to pay is bullshit. I've run a vnc-server on hp-ux in the past 
century. In the 1990's, I used the binary Xvnc for/on hp-ux. You should 
be able to find a hpux package for free.

There are several ways to setup vnc on unix machines. The vnc package 
for unix contains a binary Xvnc, which can be used as a replacement or 
additional X11 server. There are various recipies in the archives of 
internet, even in the archives of this maillist, if they go back that long.

If you are desperate and I can find the time and the data, I might dig 
it from my memory. Unfortunately, there are no hp-ux machines around to 
fetch the working settings.

Success
