VNC on Solaris 10...

Hey want to know how to configure VNC on Solaris 10....

checkout the following link ...

VNC on Solaris 10

If it doesn't work for you send me an email to
I will send you the required packages, which can be installed with single command.

Tips to manage VNC:

1. To change the default options used by vncserver:

All the settings of vncserver are stored in file /etc/dt/config/Xservers. You will need to modify this file for any customized changes you need. You can set the resolution,add more vnc screens,change the default port to listen, change color depth & many more....

2. To change the default resolution:

Edit the file /etc/dt/config/Xservers. You will find the a line for each screen configured. The first is configured to display on local monitor & others are for VNC.
To change resolution for first screen edit line starting with ":1" and change setting of '-geometry' to your required resolution like 1024x768 or 800x600...

3. To restart the VNC service:

To make sure the changes you done to default configuration are working you can do the following:
a) restart your PC ( not so comfortable,right?) OR
b) logout from graphical window & from text console run the below command:
# /etc/init.d/dtlogin reset
After 5-10 seconds the you will get the graphical login console & VNC screens with changed settings.

Enjoy !!!
