Why not try something "simple" by dumping the VNCSERVERARGS line since it may confuse things since "nolisten tcp" prevents X connections to your VNC server via TCP and -localhost will prevent remote VNC clients connecting except when doing so through a secure tunnel. > ]# service vncserver restart > Shutting down VNC server: [ OK ] > Starting VNC server: 1:bill [FAILED] > > ( I have tried 0 and 2, 0 gives me > ]# service vncserver start > Starting VNC server: 0:root A VNC server is already running as :0 > [FAILED] > ]# vncviewer (I get a screen asking for VNC server but no answer > satisfies.
