yum install vnc-server might be the explicit to install the server components with the client as dependent packages.

Hi,

My guess is the X session isn't starting on the Redhat  box,

Plz go through the below steps.

su to the user that you will be logging in as.

1.      Run vncpasswd and set the password.

2.      Now run vncserver. This will create the needed initialization files.

3.      Edit /home/user/.vnc/xstartup and uncomment the two lines there to get a normal desktop when you log in.

4.      Now kill the Xvnc task and delete the lock files in the .vnc directory

5.      service vncserver start (there might be some other lock files you need to delete; I can't remember now - check any error messages here)

6.      Unfirewall 5901 tcp to allow remote connections

7.      Connect from the remote machine using servername:1

Note:- uncomment the 2 line in the xstartup file.

Hi,

1. Edit /etc/sysconfig/vncservers as root.

Uncomment the line:

VNCSERVERS="1:put_the_user_you_will_log_in_as_here"

The server will default to the resolution of the machine, so if you are going to connect to a desktop with a high resolution monitor from a laptop you will want to uncomment and set the following line also:

VNCSERVERARGS[1]="-geometry 1024x768"

2. restart vcn services
