getting vncserver to work on Fedora


Does anyone have a step-by-step guide for getting VNCserver to work on Fedora. I have tried several thing, but I still get a connection refused when I try to connect from my windows system. Both are in the LAN, so there are no hardware firewall issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

then it should ask for a password, if that doesnt work, try

just try either of those
