 vnc and ethereal
Author: Terry Todd 
Date:   16-08-02 22:25

I tried to start up an ethereal session as root from within
a vnc window running on FreeBSD 4.6-STABLE and it fails.

fastpc# ethereal &
[1] 2858
fastpc# Xlib: connection to ":1.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key

Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :1.0

[1] Exit 1 ethereal
fastpc#


Running ethereal as a normal user works fine.

Has anyone else experienced this?

TIA
