How to gracefully start and stop VNC?
I've just recently learned that there is a VNC server for Linux... so please be patient with me!
I have installed vnc server on a couple of servers and have modified the xstartup file so that GDM runs for the user. All is well and good, except the user wants to be able to connect to the server without first logging in and running the vncserver command (details...details!) How is this done and is it secure?
Also, I would like the display manager to quietly retire once you hit the logoff icon. Currently, the session ends, but the server doesn't die, so must be killed manually (another annoyance for my user.)
Last but not least... how secure are the VNC transactions? Is tunneling through ssh a nightmare to setup?
