Need Help with VNC


I am trying to access Linux GUI from Windows XP, so I installed vnc4server on Linux and RealVNC on Windows. But a problem arose when I used RealVNC to connect to Linux:
Code:
unable to connect to host: Connection refused (10061)
Can anyone help me resolve this? The firewall is already turned off.

Start with the usual: Can you ping the machine you're trying to VNC into?

Ok. How are you starting vncserver on the Linux machine, and how are you trying to connect w/ RealVNC from WinXP? "<machine ip/name>:1" or something like that?

Maybe I didn't start vncserver. Can you tell me how to do that in GUI?

Ah... Well, when I do it, I usually open a terminal window and just type "vncserver". This starts up a vncserver instance on display # :1 for whatever user I'm logged in as. This gives a message like the following: "New '<machine>:1 (username)' desktop is <machine>:1" Then, to log in via RealVNC on WinXP, I enter "<machinename/ip>:1".

I successfully connected to Linux, but I could only access to the terminal. How can I access to the others like the task bar, file browser ...?
