Ekadasi and Vaikunta ekadasi

I request a posting how the Ekadasi viratham, in particular the Vaikunta 
Ekadasi viratham, is to be observed.

When I was young, I was asked to fast even without water during the Vaikunta 
ekadasi. Is this correct?. Recently I read in the Narasimha Priya journal 
that on Ekadasi day, sooji was served to the devotees. Who are eligible to 
eat such food during the Ekadasi?(Perhaps the kainkaryaparars who have to do 
heavy physical work during the day?).
