Using VNC in inetd mode|
These are just brief notes on setting up VNC in inetd mode. It essentially gives you these key features:
1. Users connect to the same server:screen all the time 2. A new 'screen' is automatically allocated when the user connects 3. The user's session is killed when they disconnect (some might not call this a feature at all)Add to /etc/services
vnc-800x600x8 5951/tcp vnc-800x600x16 5952/tcpAdd the following to inetd.conf
vnc-800x600x8 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/local/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd -query localhost -once -geometry 800x600 -depth 8 vnc-800x600x16 stream tcp nowait nobody /usr/local/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd -query localhost -once -geometry 800x600 -depth 16Now send a -1 to inetd and run vncviewer connecting to:
server:51 or server:52I had the initial prob that the permissions on /tmp/.X11-unix were too restrictive so I did the old chmod 777. The number one speedup tip for VNC in general is to use corre encoding when you startup the client (this is if you are on a LAN).
