I've tried and tried and read and read. This used to work before I installed ximian desktop/evolution. I try from a winders machine and all I get is "failed to connect to server". I have no clue why this is happening.....someone please help. I'm lazy and don't want to have to walk to the other room just to use my linux box.
Here's me firing up vncserver:
[root@bones bin]# vncserver
You will require a password to access your desktops.
Would you like to enter a view-only password (y/n)? y
Password too short
