VNC on Sco Open Server
By Ted Summers
I am running SCO OSR 5.0.4
To setup VNC server for SCO5
Get gzcat, zlib, and TightVNC server for SCO 5
In a web browser go to the following URL:
Right click and "save Link as" on the file: gzcat
Right click and "save Link as" on the file: zlib-1.1.4-VOLS.tar
Right click and "save Link as" on the file: tightvnc-1.2.2-dist.tar.gz
You now have the necessary files. FTP "put" them onto your SCO
go to your SCO5 box and do the following:
cp gzcat /usr/bin
cp gzcat /bin
tar xvf zlib-1.1.4-VOLS.tar
Go into Software manager (or custom), add new software- media images--- /tmp
exit software manager
gzcat tightvnc-1.2.2-dist.tar.gz |tar xvf -
ln -s /etc/init.d/vncserver /etc/rc2.d/S99vncserver
ln -s /usr/lib/X11 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11
create a folder in the root called '.vnc'
type in the following lines:
PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/X11 ; export PATH
[ -f $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
SAVE and EXIT out of vi
add to the appropriate place in the ports listing of '/etc/services':
add to the end of '/etc/inetd.conf'
vnc640 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd -query 127.0.0.1 -once -depth 16 -geometry 640x480
vnc800 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd -query 127.0.0.1 -once -depth 16 -geometry 800x640
vnc1024 stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/bin/Xvnc Xvnc -inetd -query 127.0.0.1 -once -depth 16 -geometry 1024x768
after you set the password (only need to do that once, it won't ask next
time you run it) it's now running, REBOOT for everything to be working (I know, I know- you could just stop the inetd service, but I just want to make sure everything goes fine after a reboot).
Test it with the VNC viewer of your choice on another computer.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.
I am a Kerio reseller. Articles here related to Kerio products reflect my honest opinion, but I do have an obvious interest in selling those products also.
Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
