x11vnc disconnects


When I am trying to login or logout from my redhat entreprise linux 3 machine through x11vnc the commmand is processed but the connection is lost.
Any solution for this problem?

How are you running vnc on RH 3.

We've found that running it as part of the xinetd daemon instead of a service leads to better reliability.

I am not sure if I understood your question.
I need to access my physical display remotely and vnc doesn't support this so I downloaded X11vnc which support this utility.
If the host is already logged and I access it through x11vnc , the process worked well.
But if I access the login screen and try to log in the connection is lost and the login process is done.

The login will change owneership of the root
display. VNC then looses access, requiring
a reconnect.

If you need to login, then regular VNC running
as a service should be fine.

Re: x11vnc disconnects

Hi guys again,

Sorry if I am not giving you the right info .I am new to linux.
I am using X11vnc and not vnc.
Steven:what is the difference between running x11vnc as part of the xinetd daemon or a service.
Bill:you and steven have different views.you told me that running X11vnc as a service is better while steven said the opposit.

I need to work on the same display as the one on my physical monitor plugged on the host so when I work on my pc through x11vnc the user of the host machine can view what i am doing and vice versa.
vnc provides me a gui display session but not the one on my display:0 on the physical monitor.
