Hi ,

Has there been any major changes to vnc in 4.1.1 & 4.2 ? Since the
upgrade from 4.0.1 to 4.1.1 I can't get vnc to work.
main:        unable to connect to host: Connection refused (111)
Whereas in 4.0.1 it worked fine??? Is there some new configuration

Nope, no changes.

There is not much to it. Here are a few things to check:

* Make sure /etc/xinetd.d/vnc exists

* Make sure /usr/bin/Xvnc exists

* Make sure the vnc entries are in /etc/services:

   $ grep vnc /etc/services
    vnc-1024x768x16 5900/tcp
    vnc-800x600x16  5901/tcp
    vnc-640x480x16  5902/tcp
    vnc-1024x768x8  5903/tcp
    vnc-800x600x8   5904/tcp
    vnc-640x480x8   5905/tcp

* Make sure xinetd is running:

   /sbin/chkconfig xinetd on
   /sbin/service xinetd restart

* If you are connecting from the external network,
  make sure your firewall rules allow ports 5900-5905

Hi Eric,

Thanks, Seems that during the upgrade /etc/vnc was changed to /etc/vnc.rpmsave without being replaced. However there is another file that is identical to /etc/vnc called /etc/vncts .
But by changing vnc.rpmsave to just vnc it works fine.
