"First, Core 10 is more secure out of the box than any prior version of the Fedora operating system. How secure? It installs both iptables and SELinux by default, and it does not give you the option not to install them or turn them off initially. If you are unfamiliar with these, especially SELinux, you should read up on them. It has been ten years since I last worked with SELinux, so I need to get back to the books...er...wikis.

"Second, vncserver does not install by default, nor do the twm or xterm applications that the default configuration of vncserver uses.

"So, first, install the package(s). I did a simple yum install vncserver xterm twm."
