vino needs a different port ?

lo there all,
i have ubuntu linux 6.10 running on a server at work.
we have configured our router to point port 5900 to another linux computer for vnc. However, i cant seem to find the configuration file that will let me change the listening port on the new computer to listen for say, port 5901 for this one.
if i vnc in to my office i would like to use
vncviewer for our main server and
vncviewer for our backup server.

both use vino-server for desktop sharing

so how could i go about changing this behavior ?

If you type:
vncserver :x
it will use port 590x

hey thanks,
what i wound up doing was reconfiguring the router to point port 5901 to 5900. I didn't want to do it that way because the router config stuff is kinda new to me. But, it is working.

thanks again
