i have a p200mmx, mandrake 9.0 linux box that i'm running d2ol DC project on. i'd like to have remote access for maintenance purposes. i loaded tightvnc server, tightvnc viewer, and docs, but can't seem to be able to locate the docs
when i select tightvnc, i get the shell, and xserver dialog box. what do i input into each? the p200 will have the server, and a different box will access through a local lan w/ cat53 cable, rj45 connectors (patch), a 10/100 linksys ethernet switch, the p200 has a functioning 3com 3c509 etherlinkIII 10 mbps isa NIC, the viewer box has a realtec 8139 10/100 NIC. everthing should work. also, how do i determine what the address of the p200 box is (command, and what konsole/ shell???)? i'd like to input the ip of the p200 box, and a password as well! thanks for any input!
btw, are the commands different, or the same regardless of linux distro???
also, i'm using kde, and it seems a little slow w/ my onbd graphics (s3 virge 2meg vid). mb is RU430HX, 64meg ram. i'd like to reduce the "acceleration" down to get things working faster- how do i do this? icewm, blackbox seem to be better, but seem to lack the functionality of kde (missing things???).
