tight vnc question


ok i got vnc server installed and working. Now i have a question, when i login it starts a new display like hostname:1, how can i access the display that is currently running on my machine which is hostname:0 i think, something like remote desktop in windows. Can this be done or not?

you can't - it's a horribly insecure idea.

there is a desktop server for KDE that will allow this, but you need to specifically want to. can't remember what it's called offhand though.
