Hi all,

I am trying to improve the security of vnc remote access to a particular server (RHEL 5.0) which is used to perform administrative functions in the production network for my team.

I wish to implement a sms-otp type security mechanism to secure authentications to the user connections to the vncserver service.

Anyone has any ideas or experience on how do i go about implementing this?

Thanks!
