Hi :- dry.gif

1. Each user has to log on at least once, and set a vncpasswd (or start vncserver). I recommend running vncserver for each user and quitting it.
2. Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

The comments hints the format:
VNCSERVERS="1:user1 2:user2 3:user3"
Uncomment (remove the #) and set each display (1,2,3) to match a user (user1, user2, user3).

3. Type "ntsysv" on a shell. This displays a list of services. Mark "vncserver".

4. To check the configuration:
service vncserver start

5. Reboot and check

Enjoy... smile.gif
