VNC Server setup, need help in user login screens

Post by vikram8jp » 2008/10/17 06:08:07

Hello all,

I have just started with Linux and CentOS 4.6. I have installed a vnc server on my machine and am using a vnc client(TightVNC) on WindowsXP to access the accounts.

Right now I enter the : like
192.168.1.12:2 and then enter the password.

My question is how can I make use of the user login screen like we normally do when we login on a machine. I don't want this entering the port and password.

I did find something in this relation. Setting up the VNC using vnc-ltsp-config package. Is this is way to go?

Thanks for any help.

VNC Server setup, need help in user login screens

This is not a vnc question.
This is a dns question.
Your dns server must resolve your internal machine names.

Let me rephrase that question Gerald.

I just installed a VNC server on my KDE desktop environment CentOS 4.6. Now the thing is I am using a client TightVNC for viewing the vnc accounts. Right now it immediately prompts for password as soon as I enter host address like:
192.168.1.112:2

The password window appears right there. I want some way to allow remote users to access the login screen. I tried using the gdmsetup and configuring the /etc/x11/gdm/gdm.conf file but I couldn't find the proper setting.
This is what I wanted to ask.

Can somebody help me with this.
Thanks
Vik.
