I have installed VNC on a winblows and Linux machine (redhat 8.0). I sed the rpm file from rpmfind.net and installed it. I can view a windows sessions from Linux, however when I try to view a Linux session from Windows i cannot connect. Just to be sure I took all restrictions off of IP tables and it is wide open. IS ther anything I need to configure or something so I can see the X sessions from windows? VNC seems to be running, I used the proper syntax.
first, did you install the viewer or the server? in windows they are the same package, but I dont believe they are the same in Linux. Try to Telnet to you linux box, login and give the "vncserver" command. at this point it should tell you the hostname and display for your server session. IE smbsvr:1. if it does not, you might not have installed the server. Then, using either your hostname or your box's ip address, run vnc viewer on windows to try to connect. The login will be the same as the one you used in telnet. Also, I may be mistaken, but i dont believe you can use this setup as root (prolly a good thing) hope this helps.
