    vnc server

    When I know I am going to use it I restart my Linux box and do not log into GUI. My question is, is there a way to keep my home pc in gui mode and then vnc into it? If so how?

    Can you rephrase your question? I don't see what you are wanting to do...(of course that could just be me )

    I don't really understand the problem, JROCK2004. Why don't you just start the VNC server from the GUI?

    This is from Real vnc website

    Can I remote the normal X:0 display of my Unix workstation?
    The standard behaviour of VNC on Unix platforms is to start a completely new X desktop (:n) which is independent of the standard X display of the workstation (:0). However version 4.0 of VNC has support for remoting the :0 display. See Native X display support for details.

    So it looks like I have to update vnc

    I think this clears up my problem but IU have to download the new version first

    You want to ' share' you active desktop ? Like remote controle or something that's used in WinXP ?
