Are you wanting to start the server or client end ?

Server end is started from /etc/inittab with lines similar to the following;

V1:5:respawn:/etc/govnc 1 800x600 8 1>/tmp/axvnclog1 2>&1
V2:5:respawn:/etc/govnc 6 1024x768 8 1>/tmp/axvnclog2 2>&1
V3:5:respawn:/etc/govnc 10 1024x768 16 1>/tmp/axvnclog3 2>&1

V1 = 800x600 8 bit colour
V2 = 1024x768 8 bit colour
V3 = 1024x768 16 bit colour

I normaly start vnc (server) in the shell with /usr/bin/vncserver so I though it has to be in the inittab:

vnc:5:respawn:/usr/bin/vncserver

that doesn't work... I don't know why...

for what exactly is ">/tmp/axvnclog 2 2>&1"?

I know that the ">" is vor a redirection, I think that will generate a log-file or so...but I really don't know for what the "2 2>&1" is

Can you help me again?

Big thanks anyway,
Andy

I saw there is an error message at the console:

vnc: couln't find "xauth" on your path

and

respawning too fast: wait for 5 minutes

I searched trough the internet, but I only found the tip to try to run the app in the shell...

In the shell I can start vncserver without any problems...

I don't know what is the problem with the xauth... Can you help me? Do I have to specify something else? As I said if I login and start svcserver I don't have any problems.

I use realvnc from http://www.realvnc.com

It would be really nice if you can help me...

Thanks a lot,
Andy
