Unable to Connect to VNC server (vino)


I was able to login and use VNC from my Windows machine, I rebooted my Ubuntu box and now I can't connect. Does the VNC server need to be restarted each time I reboot my box?

This is a headless machine and now I see that vino doesn't appear to be listening on 5900. Why didn't the vncserver start after a reboot?

I also tried starting the server from the CL and this is what I get.

I've solved the problem on this machine it had a hard lock and wouldn't boot past the POST screen, I had to unplug the power supply and all seems to be well..

Sorry for the noise.

TW,
