Tightvnc XF86Config Native X Display

Have configured Tightvnc to work correctly using displays other than :0.

Followed the instructions on the vnc website for native X display.

Edit XF86Config load and add passwordfile option
AQlso copied to the correct location.

It appears the vnc module is getting loaded on startup as the vncserver responds when trying to connect to it using vncviewer. The problem is when it prompts for the password I can seem to get authenticated. It is the same password file that I was using for the vncservers started on display :! which was fine.

I am using Mandrake 10.1 and tightvnc was installed using packages. I am sure the problem exists in my config file displayed below. Could someone post a working config file or point me in the direction of somemore info that would be cool.

Thanks for the help
