Question Need syntax for VNCServer listing port number reset


I am taking over the management and support for a workstation with RHEL v5.x OS with all the updates. The free version of VNCServer is running on it so I can see the display console. Recently my company changed our remote VPN and they have restricted the ports numbers available. Port 5900 and 5901, etc. are not available. What is the syntax to reset the VNCServer listening port to what I want?

This has been answered on here before. See this thread:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...r-port-354041/

This page http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=42062 walks you through a bunch of things for FC10 (should be close enough to work on RHEL...), including routing everything through SSH (port 22), so everything is encrypted...
