Description of problem:
Installation of vnc-ltsp-config.noarch 4.0-3 does not appear to affect VNC settings in any way. The vncts service is present in /etc/xinetd.d. However, I am only able to VNC-in when a user is already logged in locally, and this just controls the current desktop. A new session with login prompt is not created. I've tried rebooting, restarting the vncts service and xinetd service, uninstalling and reinstalling the vnc packages but nothing helps. If there's some extra configuration required to get this working, I could find no documentation for it on the web.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install vnc-ltsp-config
2. Try to login from another machive via VNC.
3. Notice it doesn't create a new session.
Actual Results: Normal VNC functionality.
Expected Results: Remote login via VNC and LTSP.
I used "Terminal Server Client" to make the VNC connection.
Simply installing vnc-ltsp-config isn't enough.
You'll probably want to disable the regular VNC sessions on the machine:
$ /sbin/service vnc stop
Then, you'll need to also enable the vncts service with
$ chkconfig vncts on
(becuase it's disabled by default).
Lastly, you need to configure your desktop/login manger (gdm or kdm) to allow
XDMCP connections from localhost.
If you have further questions/problems, I'd suggest taking it to one of the
fedora mailing lists.
