VNC on Red Hat 9


I have VNC running on Red Hat 9. When I connect from Windows 2K using VNC viewer I get a different desk top on the Red Hat box. How do I view the same screen?

Welcome to LQ.

Take a look at "Desktop Sharing" beneath "System Tools"

Thanks for the tip but when I try that I get the following:

Cannot find KInetD. Have you restarted KDE after installation?

Any VNC help would be appreciated.

I am looking for the TCP ports for my router for the VNC Server in Red Hat 9.
Does anyone know the ports so that I can access my Linux server remotely?
I believe I have setup the server for display 1.

Thanks

I think should be 5901
not sure about desktop sharing in KDE, but for VNC it's designed to work this way in linux, you can't control your local session like you do with the windows version.

Thanks for that.
I thought it was 5XX1 something. I originally had 5801. I stand corrected.
Thanks.

There are several ports that can be used (they increase with display numbsers):
Listening server: 5500
HTTP server: 5800
VNC server: 5900

I'm having the same problem. Did you ever find a solution to it?

Yes.
5900 port is for the interface and 5800 port is for HTTP so whatever VNC display you are using (i.e. 1 or 2 or 3, etc.) will be the port you need.
For example, VNC display 1 will be 5901 for interface viewing and 5801 will be HTTP viewing.
I hope that helps.
