vncviewer not working in F7

hai all,

I have Fedor 7 installed on my desktop and using bash shell.
I have checked in the services management that the vnc server is started and is running.
But i am not able to connect to any machine in my network using the following command:

vncviewer ipaddressort

The bash shell says that command is not found.I donot know whether the command is correct or not.Can some one help me out.

yum -y install vnc*
That will take care of your VNC needs.

At the very least the 'vncviewer' command is not in your path (that is the right command BTW).
On my system vncviewer is in /usr/bin/ (/usr/bin/vncviewer)
execute the following and paste into a reply:
echo $PATH
I can't remember if the vncviewer is in the same package as the vncserver. Try installing vncviewer:
yum install vnc
If its already installed yum will say "nothing to do".

Good luck.

try locate vncviewer to find out where it is, then invoke it by the complete path name.
