First of all....  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.

Don't forget that the format of vncviewer is "vncviewer [options]
[host][:display#]" 

So, if you started vncserver using VNCSERVERS="1:bill" and you start
vncviewer on the same machine with no parameters you'd use.... "localhost:1"

Remember that if you are connecting from a remote host you'll need to
change your firewall settings assuming you are running a firewall.
