    How to configure VNC on EL4.0

    I have a got a machine with text mode access, what is the conf to be done to get the GUI mode thru VNC. I had confirmed that VNC is running on the machine.

    Suggest me how to proceed?

    I use SSH for this task.

    In /etc/ssh/ssh_config:
    ForwardX11 yes
    ForwardX11Trusted yes

    In /etc/ssh/sshd_config
    X11Forwarding yes

    Then with an SSH window running bash, I simply type the graphics command I want run. It pops up just like it was local, though a bit slower.

    Apart from SSH, you should be able to specifiy the display either with the -display switch or the DISPLAY variable. I haven't experimented much with these.
