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 (http://www.realvnc.org)
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:
/home/myuser
now enter
cd .vnc
vi xstartup
now comment every line, except following:

 unset SESSION_MANAGER
 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.

See http://www.tightvnc.com/download.html

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?
