Lenard,

Sorry for getting back to u lil late.

i went thru the documents, enabled what needs to be enabled. I am getting this error message

/sbin/service vncserver stop
Shutting down VNC server: 1:ADNET
Can't find file /home/ADNET/.vnc/application1.adnet-sys.com:1.pid
You'll have to kill the Xvnc process manually Vncserver failed. The error was: Shutting down VNC server: 1:ADNET [FAILED]

Can't find file /home/ADNET/.vnc/application1.adnet-sys.com:1.pid
You'll have to kill the Xvnc process manually [FAILED]


Starting VNC server: 1:ADNET A VNC server is already running as :1 [FAILED]

I can still run VNC though from internal/external network.
When i try to run the XVnc, it says the service is stopped. The above error happens.

Kinda confused with all these.

Sorry for getting back to you a bit late myself.......

The 'sevice vncserver' commands you posted looks correct, which version of the vncserver rpm did you have installed??? I have used them myself a number of times without any issue.

You have to manually remove the vnc folders you created, simply right click on them and choose the delete option.

FYI: the command of 'rpm -qa | grep vnc' is a waste of keystrokes, in the future try something like; rpm -qa 'vnc*'

Or if you want something fancy try this one out;

rpm -qa --qf="%{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}.rpm\n" | sort > Installed.txt

I have already deleted the VNC RPM(4.0.8.1.i386)

As u mentioned i went ahead and deleted everything i had with the name VNC in my linux box. Still i can make the connection . I updated the database also just in case.

Either my machine likes VNC too much to let it go or i m beginning to think that is under a Ghost attack.

Been thinking about this.......... to cover all the bases;

Did you stop the vncserver service before removing the rpm package??? Since you removed the vncserver rpm package have you rebooted???

One can uninstall a service like vncserver but the full effect (the service is still loaded and working) does not take affect until the service is stopped (before removing) or the system is restarted (after the removal if the service is not stopped beforehand).

As a suggestion (as root) also try; chkconfig --level 345 vncserver off

Lenard,

I did stop the vncserver before uninstalling . I m putting the location of VNC in the system. I havent restarted the Linux box after it was uninstalled.

[root@application1 ~]# locate vncserver
/var/cache/man/cat1/vncserver.1.bz2

[root@application1 ~]# locate Xvnc
/var/cache/man/cat1/Xvnc.1.bz2

[root@application1 ~]# locate vnc
/var/cache/man/cat1/vncserver.1.bz2
/var/cache/man/cat1/Xvnc.1.bz2
/var/cache/man/cat1/vncconfig.1.bz2
/var/cache/man/cat1/vncpasswd.1.bz2

/usr/libexec/webmin/caldera/vnc/images/icon.gif


And thanks for helping and going through this issue of mine.I can still start a VNC session .

OK, how did you install vncserver??? An rpm file or something else(a tar/gz/bz file)?? Something does not look right, I have the vnc-server rpm package installed (but disabled) and I get;

$ rpm -qa 'vnc*'
vnc-4.1.2-9.fc6
vnc-server-4.1.2-9.fc6

$ locate vncserver
/etc/rc.d/init.d/vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc4.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K35vncserver
/etc/sysconfig/vncservers
/usr/bin/vncserver
/usr/bin/x0vncserver
/usr/share/man/man1/vncserver.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/x0vncserver.1.gz

$ locate Xvnc
/usr/bin/Xvnc
/usr/share/man/man1/Xvnc.1.gz


Check the /etc/rc.d locations (~/rc3{4,5].d and initd directories ) for any (leftover) vncserver SXX Kxx files (K35vncserver or vncserver for examples). Remove them if need be.

Also block/check/edit/remove the /etc/iptables entry for the the vncsever service, either comment out the example line (below) or edit to REJECT;

Code:
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 5901 -j ACCEPT
Do not forget to restart the iptables service(s) when done;

service iptables restart
service iptables6 restart

The package was already installed , it was a rpm package . VNC RPM(4.0.8.1.i386)


$ rpm -qa 'vnc*'
vnc-4.1.2-9.fc6
vnc-server-4.1.2-9.fc6

$ locate vncserver
/etc/rc.d/init.d/vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc4.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/K35vncserver
/etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K35vncserver
/etc/sysconfig/vncservers
/usr/bin/vncserver
/usr/bin/x0vncserver
/usr/share/man/man1/vncserver.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/x0vncserver.1.gz

$ locate Xvnc
/usr/bin/Xvnc
/usr/share/man/man1/Xvnc.1.gz

Except for the files mentioned above in my early post i dont see any other instances of VNC, VNCSERVER ,XVNC. Should i go ahead and delete the files from the Cache also?

I have restarted the Iptables after commenting on port 5901

None of the /var/cache/ files do not seem to be anything that would execute. But to err on the side of caution, yes remove them.
