Description molter 2002-11-01 18:20:00 UTC
    The Xvnc server of port net/tightvnc fails to bind to an address when
    invoked with the -localhost or -interface options.
    This means that one cannot force the connections to the server to be
    only thru SSH port forwarding, degrading system security.
    Following easy patch fixes the problem. I also sent the patch to
    the tightvnc developers.

Fix: Put following patch in

    You may also want to bump the revision number in the port Makefile.

    [note that vncserver is a wrapper for Xvnc]

    $ vncserver -localhost
    $ vncserver -interface <ipaddress>
