Unhappy XVNC terminal server question

hey all,

I've a novell linux desktop 9.0 with kde 3.2
I have configured a xvnc server and it works but what i want doesn't seem to work.

i want to connect on a specific tcp port that connects me to a pre defined desktop

host:5902 gives me to :2

currently it is as random as rain... :-(
and for operational reasons i need to know when i connect what desktop i'm going to get....

this is what i have configured


service vnc-1
protocol = tcp
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = nobody
server = /usr/X11R6/bin/Xvnc
server_args = :2 -inetd -query localhost -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16

service vnc-2
protocol = tcp
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = nobody
ferver = /usr/X11R6/bin/Xvnc
server_args = :5 -inetd -query localhost -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16

service vnc-3
protocol = tcp
socket_type = stream
wait = no
user = nobody
server = /usr/X11R6/bin/Xvnc
server_args = :9 -inetd -once -query localhost -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16


# VNC Server
# Graphical Cash Register sollution

vnc-1 5911/tcp
vnc-2 5912/tcp
vnc-3 5913/tcp

but when i connect port 5911 i should get desktop :2
I get it sometimes but only sometimes .... it's random as hell

Are you using a vncclient?

If so just typing

Host:display should take you to that vnc screen.



Should take you to :5 display.
The above one works for me when I go for a vncserver command in the linux box and try to connect from some other machine.
[Means I dont have a pre-setup of desktops in /etc/xinetd.d/xvncserver file ]


server, xvnc
