    Accepted Solution

    run command in LINUX shell
    # vncserver
    it will ask password, confirm password
    it will show you display port,   :1 or :2 or :3
    now from window PC, run VNCVIEWER (
    enter IPAddress:1 or IPAddress:2 ...whatever port was shown after entering vncserver command

    if you need GUI through VNC, goto user folder in LINUX:
    now enter
    cd .vnc
    vi xstartup
    now comment every line, except following:

     exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

    Just use any of the VNC clients available for Linux (which means just about all clients).

    Depending on your distribution, you probably already have a VNC client installed on your system.

    If not, tightvnc is a good option.

    the problem is not clear. How about the port?
    I can view the screen, I can't control the linux!

    Are you using the vnc client in read only mode?
