Angry VNC from Windows


Hi all,

I am a windows systems admin. we are moving to Linux. I just started learning about Redhat ES.
I installed Redhat ES for my boss to start moving his Oracle 10g database. he wants to be able to log in to Linux from his Windows XP, I installed vnc viewer. followed all the instructions I found on how to configure vncserver. When he connects he gets a grey screen with the manager.

this is the output of my xstartup file.

# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:
unset SESSION_MANAGER
exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
#exec gnome-session &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
exec gnome-session &


now when I try to connect I get this error message :Unable to connect to host: connection refused (10061).

P/S I restarted iptables/vncserver services.

thanks
