    1. To rule out connectivity issues (networking, firewall, etc.), try to connect locally first.

    2. How are you trying to connect? E.g., if your machine running the VNC server is ip address 192.168.1.2, then (assuming you started the server with "vncserver :1") you would do:
    Code:
    vncviewer 192.168.1.2:1
    3. Did you set up a VNC password first, before starting the VNC server?
