When i try to connect to the linux machine from winXp .. using RealVnc
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 ..

can anyone help me decipher this mess !!

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