windows to centos remote control

greetings,
im trying to use tightVNC from windows to centos.
i've installed  "tightvnc-1.2.9-1.i386.rpm  i've  started the vnc server in centos and can ping it from the windows box.

but when trying to connect from the windows box through the vnc viewer
"tightvnc-1.3.9_x86_viewer.zip"  the connection fails.

any thought as to how to get this working or another solution for remoting from w > L

Install openSSH Server on the Centos box, install Putty and XMing on your windows PC. That way you can connect securely to the Centos box, and also open Applications that use a GUI remotely.
