Viewer.. it says "Failed to connect server" Above is the dump from the log
file .. i can see the vncserver running doing ps -A| grep "vnc" .. I can
access telnet,ftp,ssh to this machine .. but this vncserver is going nuts !!
.. I also tried giving
ALL : A.B.C.D in /etc/hosts.allow
where A.B.C.D is the machine ip from i want to access the linux desktop ..

could it be a firewall issue? i dont run VNC and that log dump didnt seem to report any error. well, except for that "renderer missing" stuff.

Also when you are connecting make sure that you also specify a display or port number.
