Re: VNC Connection aborts with no error message

    The vncserver itself gets started as a regular service during boot up... or rather it listens as a daemon for incoming requests and then gets started when one comes in... When I upgraded from FC3 last weekend I didn't really have to configure the vncserver.... it was installed by default... I use graphical clients to connect to it... there's the 'VNC Viewer' vnc client in the Accessories group in the Main Gnome  program  listing... and then I use  a graphical VNC Viewer on a Windows 2000 machine on my local network...
    Everything worked fine with FC3 and it worked 'ok' at first when the installation of the FC4 completed last weekend but then it just suddenly started abruptly closing the window whenever I try to make a connection
... I wish I knew where the log file was located. I guess I'm not going to really know what's going on until I see the log file

Thanks for your input.

how are you starting the vncserver? are you doing it manually from the
command line 'vncserver' are you starting the server as 'root' or some other

i can't recall where the vncserver log files are located, but are able to
look at them and let us know what they say. are you coming into the server
on the standard vnc ip ports?

Did you stop the service iptables for testing purposes? And why does a
server need a graphical ui? :-)
