OK, I guess I'm confused. The Linux systems will not be using remote desktop themselves to connect to anything. I have one system that will connect to all 12 of the RHEL5 workstations and be able to display their desktops.
I have that one system setup with vncserver so that it can and does connect to the workstations and displays their desktops via VNC. That connection works but VNCSERVER is not running on the RHEL workstations. Doesn't VNCSERVER need to be running for the settings in /etc/sysconfig/vncservers to be handled?
Maybe I was not clear on what I'm trying to do. No matter what user is logged into the system, I want the following options to automatically be set on each RHEL client.
- Allow other users to view your desktop
- Does NOT have to ask the user for confirmation
- Requires a password to allow to the remote connection.
Right now I can do that by having each individual user go into the Remote Desktop Preferences but I'd rather they did not, and a single config file handle it so that when any user logs on, the above options are already set.
I appreciate the help and thanks for putting up with a VNC newbie.
