VNC on Linux


Hi,

I tried VNC server on Fedora8.

If I am on the runlevel 5 and trying to access the fedora box with vncviewer, I just get a blank screen. If runlevel 5 is not active, I can see a display with just one terminal window open. Is there any configuration to be done to get the entire desktop using VNCviewer ?

I found the problem:


When I started VNC viewer in the client machine, a window popped up in the server asking for the conformation whether it should allow a remote access to the desktop. It requires a human interaction to allow. I would like to get the access without any such proceedings. Can anyone suggest a method to avoid this.

Thanks,
