    Hello bigfilsing,

    If you want to start the viewer you can run:
    vncviewer

    To start the server you enter:
    vncserver

    On an RPM based system, like SuSE, you can look up this information yourself by issuing:

    rpm -qa|grep vnc

    This will give you the package name(s) of vnc (related) packages installed on your system.

    To find which files belong to this package, you do this:

    rpm -ql packagename

    If you only want to see the executables you can type:
    rpm -ql packagename|grep bin

    Good luck!

    Bedankt LB

    Works a treat ( why didn't i think of that )

    Also created a link on the desk top and figured out that if you put the IP after the "vncviewer" command it connects as well. Works great

    Cheers
