XVNC Problem - No password configured for VNC Auth

Hi,
I am trying to setup VNC to work with xinetd. I have the following in my
/etc/services file
vnc-mjs04             5951/tcp
Then in the /etc/xinetd.d/vnc

service vnc-mjs04
{
        socket_type = stream
        protocol = tcp
        wait = no
        user = nobody
        server = /usr/bin/Xvnc
        server_args = -inetd -query localhost -once -rfbauth /home/mjs04/.vnc/passwd -desktop mjs04@hpcc1
}

I have a password in my /home/mjs04/.vnc/passwd file when connect on hpcc1:5951, I get the password box and enter the correct password, I then get the following
No password configured for VNC Auth.

Any ideas?
Thanks

default behavior is to not allow login until a password is set, run vncpasswd for that user and set a passwd.

Hi,
Sorry maybe I didn't put it in the question clearly. I have already set the password and checked for the existance of the password file.

I set the password by being logged on as the user and type vncpasswd :5951 to set the password.

Thanks

Michael

I am not sure how you started the service, however, has the vnc daemon be restarted since the config was changed. Also, try resetting the passwword again, never know.

Still no luck with this, leaving VNC how it is.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
