Either 5500 or 5900 are the default ports I think.

   Port 5900 by default.
   For mulitple sessions in Linux, it will add 1 to 100 to 5900, such as 5901, 5902....
But for connection from the VNC client, all you need to remember is :1, :2, :3 ......
Such as
# tightvncviewer (or vncviewer) <hostname>:1 ( or :2, :3)

   The port number is determined by server processes when you start it.
For the information about your VNC server session, check the ~/.vnc directory.
There are a couple files named <hostname>:<port number>.pid
