securing vnc server on RH


Hi,

My server is an ftp server connected to the internet from my house. I want to be able to connect to this server with vncserver but just from my local lan. how I can restrict this kind of connection? maybe with ipchains or ip tables? or maybe within the vnc config files?

Thanks very much !

Juan

to things can be done:

- disable the vnc ports on your box for the internet interface.
- configure vnc server to only listen/allow connections from a certain network space. (internal space e.g. 192.168.x.x)
