I can connect to vncserver just fine, but if i fire up x0vncserver for some sharing, the viewer will not connect:
[me@mycomp .vnc]$ x0vncserver

after you create the password using vncpassword you need to start x0vncserver and point it to that password file:

x0vncserver --PasswordFile=/home/user/.vnc/passwd
(or whatever path that password file is stored in)
