    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 vnc
    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 ?

    On the server machine, go to the .vnc directory of the user who started
    vncserver. In that directory should be a log file which may contain
    something useful.

    Please post log file(/home/USER/.vnc/SOMETHING1.log) .

    Also when your connecting you should give the port number.
