hello linux community
i have gnome installed on my FC3. Now, i wanted to start vnc through ssh, and i ran the following:
/usr/bin/vncserver status , and prompted me to set a password, which i did
/usr/bin/vncserver and the following came up :
xauth: creating new authority file /root/.Xauthority
New 'AEGEE_bot:1 (root)' desktop is AEGEE_bot:1
Creating default startup script /root/.vnc/xstartup
Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/AEGEE_bot:1.log
now when i try to connect to it, it gives me the connection confused error.
Note that there are no rules set in my iptables.
[root@AEGEE_bot init.d]# /usr/bin/Xvnc
Fatal server error:
