Question VNC Question


Hi Guys,

I just enabled remote administration on a OpenSuse File/print server. My question is that when I connect to the server on top of the VNC viewer screen it says nobody's X11 desktop (hostname:1). Is this normal? I'm mostly intrigued because it says nobody's X11.
Thanks!

that's possible because I'm connecting from a W$ndows box to the SuSe server and as you know VNC for windows doesn't require a user name just a password. It makes sense now.
Thanks buddy!
