Limit command

I have installed vnc on my computer but do not want every one to be able to incite a vncserver

how can I limit users of the vncserver command to only a specifc group?

I presume you're on a Unix box of sorts (Not a Win one) - just to confirm!

(1) As root, create a new group, say "vncusrs"
(2) Using "chgrp" change the group of the VNC server application to "vncusrs"
(3) Using chmod, change the permissiosn to "710"
(4) Make all users who are to be allowed to start a VNC server a part of your new group "vncusrs"
(5) Have a nice day Smilie
