RH7.2 , VNC & Firewall - can they co-exist ?
I just installed the VNC server on my linux box and when i tried to connect via a viewer from my windoz workstation, i get "Failed to connect to server". I tried both the server name and the ip address with the same results.
This linux machine is what im using to learn Linux and apache and ive got a firewall configured. I can ping my linux box and i have samba up and running fine also. I haveonly one entry in the IP tables for my windoz machine. I really dont need the firewall, but do i need to remove it to get the VNC viewer to work ?
If its easier to just remove the firewall, then how do i uninstall or disable the firewall ?
