    Trying to connect to CentOS 6.3 VNC server


    This is the error message I get:
    Code:

    hey,

    i have some questions:

    how did you install the VNC server in the first place?

    what is the exact command that you are running that is generating the above error?

    what is in your system vnc server config file? e.g.:

    Code:
    cat /etc/sysconfig/vncservers
    for the given user that you want an X/VNC session started, what is in the xstartup file and the VNC log file? e.g.:

    Code:
    cat /home/rohan/.vnc/xstartup
    Code:
    cat /home/rohan/.vnc/*.log

    based on that, i assume the answer to the 2nd question is "sudo service vncserver restart"...yes?

    can you answer the questions after that? the more details we get, the more likely we are to be helpful.
