Vncserver and Viewing Current User Session

I am using CentOS 5 and have installed vncserver to be able to view a user current session so I can tutor him and he can watch what I am doing.
It was working before and I had to reboot the computer and now I can still login but I am not viewing his current session. What needs to be adjusted so that I can see his active session? I was using X11vnc. Help

It seems as though I have been anwsering my own questions lately in this forum. Maybe I have been promoted to a Jedi as oppossed to a Wookie. Master Jedi in this forum, please let me know when I can have a place in the Jedi realm.........

I can just run vino-server and that will do the trick. Vnc-server server will allow you to run several different sessions but not the current session that you are running. Xllvnc is another alternative. I believe that LibVnc is X11vnc wrapped into vnc. So to make a long story short, I have just run vino-server for that current user session that I want to see and problem solved.
