Question VNC with multiple connections


I'm trying to get VNC setup so I can have multiple people connected to the VNC server using the same username.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

You can start more that one vncservers on different displays, so they all will use the same password.

Regards

I remember setting up Fedora a while back and the way I had it set up was, I could have multiple users (say: techuser) login and they would all be logging into the same account but they would not fight over the mouse. Each person connecting could be logged into /home/techuser. When they closed the VNC window it would kill their session, if that makes sense.
