Running Mandrake 8.1. I boot to the command prompt.
There is a program that I run off of a UNIX host for my company from this Linux box. In order to run this, I type:
$$ X -query UnixServer -depth 8
This will bring up an X session with a graphical login to the server.
Now, if I want to be able to see this from a windows program, i need to use VNC viewer. In the HOME/.vnc/xstartup file, I put the exact command as above. Then I start the VNC server:
$$ vncserver :x -depth 8
This immediately brings up the graphical login...which is good. But when I run VNC viewer from windows using LinuxHost:x and put in the password, it only shows me the gray background with an X cursor. I don't see that nice graphical login. I want to be able to see the graphical login to the UNIX server from the windows computer.
Once again it looks like this:
Unix (with 3 Xsessions) ----- Linux (uses one of the sessions) ---- Windows (VNC into the Linux box in order to see the program running on UNIX)
