VNC from Windows
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:
[ -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.
