Hi Rick,

I just tried it why your suggested configuration but I'm still unable
to access via VNC.

[root@fedora17 ~]# find / -type f -name 'passwd'
/sys/fs/selinux/class/passwd/perms/passwd
find: `/run/user/dlp/gvfs': Permission denied
/usr/share/bash-completion/completions/passwd
/usr/bin/passwd
/etc/pam.d/passwd
/etc/passwd

I've rebooted the system with no effect.

Thanks,
Tommy
