Remote desktop connection problem....


I have been trying to remotely connect to another computer on my network; both computers are running Ubuntu 8.04 and i've already installed VNCviewer on both systems and configured the remote computer correctly, but when i type " vncviewer lab-attack:0 " nothing happens it just goes to the next line with a underscore looking thing and after awhile it states that the connection was timed out.

Anyone have an idea whats going on?

You need VNC server set up on the remote computer.

So i need to install VNCserver on remote not VNCviewer, and could i do this by typing this in console " apt-get install vncserver " ?
Or search through syaptic package manager?

Thanx

I installed vncserver, i'm not sure how to start it or configure. The only thing I have configured is the remote desktop connection under system >preferences>Remote desktop. I have also heard some rumors about having problems with VNCserver and the AMD64 processor. I wish i had more info to give but all i get in the terminal is the cursor drops to the next line and after a few minutes it says server is timed out.
