im trying to run the vnc server with backtrack when the terminal pops up and asks me to enter a password the highlight cursor sits there and nothing happens when i typre anyhting
After you have typed that password it should ask if you want a view-only password. Type y or n.
After that it will say the following if it works. I hope this helps.
Code:New 'X' desktop is bt:1 Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup Log file is /root/.vnc/bt:1.log
