General Description: When using VNC (a Windows graphical remote client) to log on to a UNIX VNC server, the colors shown in the Design Manager are all black, and the following messages appear:
Wind/U Warning (213): Palette mode is only supported in 8-bit pseudo-color Wind/U Warning (216): Switched from palette mode to non-palette mode automatically. X Server Error, Message reported is: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
This occurs because the UNIX server defaults to the 8-bit palette mode, then tries to switch to the 8-bit non-palette mode; neither mode can correctly display the Design Manger.
To avoid this problem, start the server on the host; then, use the -depth <depth> option to change the color depth so that it is compatible with Design Manager.
With a Solaris machine as the server and Window NT machine as the client, use: vncserver -depth 24
