Cocurrent users in Linux
hello friends i am new bee in linux,

i had make the windows server 2003 and Xp for Multiple user (COCURRENT USERS) usinng remote dekstop protocol (RDP).

but for linux i had tried a lot but i can only view the desktop of that particular computer...i am not able to login with different user into the linux system..

Is there anybody who know how to setup the multiuser specifically cocurrent user setup for linux system..i am using Feddora 15 and also Redhat linux EL5.

At a time more then one user can use the same os from differnet computers using RDP like client in GUI form not like as SSH ..

thanks in advance..

yes you can run multiple vncserver on different ports. just login to server with the user id that you want to access and run this command on the terminal..

# vncserver :1

But it would not be as user friendly so you need to do following changes in your vncserver.

# vi ~/.vnc/xstartup

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

# vncserver -kill :1

# vncserver :1

and then run following command to generate password to access the desktop..


Hope it helps..
