    VNC not connecting


    New to linux, so bare with me

    I followed that tutorial, and I get to the part where I go in tightvnc and type the hostname to connect to. I type it in, but it says it cannot be found. Tried the IP address as well, and no go.

    Then I see this 'Remember, if you are using NAT port 5900 must be forwarded to your VNCserver. '

    Which I have no idea what to do with that.

    If on the outside of a router trying to get in to a vncserver, you just need to make sure port 5900 in your router is open for vnc clients to "get in." Look in port forwarding in your router and make sure 5900 is open and directed to the vncserver's local ip. Also, make sure port 5900 is not being blocked by firewalls on either the server or client machines. When going in, trey :5901 at the end of the ip or name.
