    I've got a RH 9 machine running, with x/kde.

    From 2 different Windows machines (Win2k and Win98), I can't seem to
    connect to the vncserver on the RH system. (failed to connect to
    server is displayed, when I connect from the client)

    After looking at the System Service Configuration tool in KDE, the
    Status for vncserver shows "Xvnc is stopped". When I restart the
    service, "VNC server start was successful is displayed in a message
    box, yet the staus still shows "Xvnc is stopped"

    What am I doing wrong ?

    Is Xvnc (or similar) shown in 'pstree' output in a terminal window?

    And what do you have in /etc/hosts.allow and hosts.deny?

  3. you might think of editing the x.inetd and hosts.allow files .....
    what port vnc uses? did you enable the firewall settings? you might
    try scanning the port from another machine ....

    these are the food for thought.
