Sorry - the link I gave you was for setting it up under CentOS. I meant the link was not a howto for Mint, not that you couldn't use Mint.

I would expect that the howto should be pretty much straight applicable to Mint.

Sorry about the confusion

No, you would use apt-get or similar.

You're going to have to give way more information than that if you want any help.

Okay lets see. I am using Linux Mint 7. I want to have my Windows Vista connect to my Linux via VNC. On my Windows Vista I have RealVNC installed. When I try to connect using RealVNC I get an error saying can't connect. I have opened all the ports I need on my 2WIRE router. I want to control my Linux on my Windows. When I use the Terminal it says it can't install VCN-Server. I believe I need that program in order to connect from my Windows to my Linux. I can't for some reason. I want to know how I can.

I believe so. I have a Remote Desktop program that I am guessing is it.
