VNC on Centos


I'm running Centos on 2 hosts that are on the same newtork and would like to setup VNC so I can access machine A from machine B.

if I run "rpm-q vnc-server" on machine A, I get vnc-server-4.1.2-14.e15_6.6

I'm new to Linux and would appreciate any help.

thanks,

Take a peek at this page. http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/VNC-Server

As noted there are many ways to do this.

after running # /sbin/service vncserver start (first step in 2.4. Create xstartup scripts ( Skip this step for CentOS 6 ))
I'm getting: Starting VNC server: no displays configured [ OK ]

Any idea how to get this resolved?
