Multiple sessions with one userID


Hello,

In Gnome, where can I allow for more than 2 sessions per a single UserID? Right now, only two people can log in to VNC with one UserID, can it be set to allow more?

Don't quote me on this, but it seems that you edit /etc/sysconfig/vncservers and add users
Quote:
VNCSERVERS="1:<username>"
VNCSERVERS="2:<username>"
VNCSERVERS="3:<username>"

The correct file may differ from one distro to another. To find config files with 'vnc' in the name, try this command:
Code:
find /etc -type f -name *vnc*
To find files with 'vnc' in the text, try
Code:
find /etc/ -type f | grep vnc

Thanks bud, I figured it out... i logged in under that userid and typed "vncserver"

edited the xstartup to start 'gnome'

incremented the port per each new session.

Thanks much!!
