VNC sharing


Hey, I am currently running a fedora server that is being used as a web host, however It would be nice to use this at home with a desktop environment. Now isn't that nice, a simple "open a few ports", I wish it were that nice and simple. The location of the server's internet connection only allowed me to open port 80 and 21 (HTTP and FTP). I am absolutely confident that these are the only ports open and that can be opened. My question is, can I use HTTP, FTP and VNC, either by sharing 80 or 21, or something else would work, however I can only use 21 or 80 (or both). Thanks a ton for any replies!

You should be able to specify which port you want vnc to run, but you won't be able to set port 80 if your webserver is also running on port 80, as far as I know.

This may work:

vncserver -display 800x600 -depth 16 -httpport 80

but I can't guarantee it will. Can't you ask somebody to open the port for you? It would make your life a lot easier
