    Hello, all,

    Has anyone come across this issue?
    I am running SUSE 10.1 and KDE. As i don't have (and don't want to) a monitor to to connect to that computer i am using VNC to connect to my SUSE 10.1 box. However if for some reason the vnc connection is dropped i can no longer connect to that same session again.
    Does anyone know of a way to do this? It is very anoying as you loose whatever unsaved work you had on that session.

    Thanks in advance:) !

    I assume you might have to kill the previous VNC session on the server first.

    That doesn't solve the main issue...

    Thanks for your reply.

    In deed, this is a way clear up resources and not to leave the session running.

    But in fact what i wanted is a way to continue working where i left off.

    Something like when you attach to console (mstsc /console) in windows xp:eek: running remote desktop connection. Basically, if you abruptly close a session, when you connect back you attach to same session again.

    Does anyone know how to do this?

    I have no idea. Maybe the VNC documentation knows something about this?
