Default VNC Server question
Just downloaded and installed PC-BSD 9.0. All is working great.
Would like to run a VNC server of some kind.
Used AppCafe to download and install TightVNC (it says it was installed!).
But now I can't figure out how to start it !
So for part one, can someone point me in the right direction to get TighVNC server started, and auto-start it as well ?!

Part two, also open to other vnc server packages.

Thanks !
jim

Here's the online manpage for TightVNC's server: http://www.tightvnc.com/vncserver.1.php

It's been awhile since I use TightVNC server, but I think I used something like:

vncserver :1

For starting it automatically, just add an entry with the above command to whatever desktop environment you're using. This would be in the desktop environment's settings under something like autostart or startup.

Cool.
That worked.
I guess I was looking for some sort of GUI to start the thing.

Also for now, completely disabled the firewall.
That seems to have helped too.

Will play with the firewall ports now so that I can keep the firewall up and running.

Thanks a bunch for the quick help !
