Xvnc is started by my rustic script called "vnc" (it is
/usr/vnc/bin/vnc). This script is called by setup/xvnc at user request,
or via /etc/inittab, if you choose to start vnc at boot.

Try "vnc -h". This script acts as frontend to the vncclient and to

        # vnc start/stop (start and stop the SERVER)
        # vnc host:display (connect to another Xvnc server, on
                                 the <host> and <display>

If used in "client mode" it is able to know if X is running: in this
case it call the command "vncviewer", otherwise the "svncviewer",
i.e. the svgalib viewer.

Hope this is clear enough.

I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
