anyone know about vnc server on fedora 4?
What about? It works pretty much the same way as on any other platform.
except i can't get it to work
Thats great. But without more details, nobody can help you.
Have you opened the ports required? Is it crashing the computer? What is going on, need more info stat.
i installed vnc via the YUM process
it installed a viewer and server just fine
i disabled the firewall
i (believe atleast) started a server
and every tiem i try to access it
it just says cannot connect
The first time you run vncserver on most platforms, it will simply ask you to enter in a new vnc password. On Fedora, it asks you to create a password and then it creates a new desktop for you in one swoop.
List your ~/.vnc directory. It contains a .pid file for every desktop you've started as that user. Then do a 'ps -ef|grep vnc' and see if the running desktops match up.
From your viewer, make sure you can ping the vncserver host first. Make sure its not a name resolution problem or that you dont have some kind of firewall running on the vnc host.
