You need to install a VNC server on your Linux box. TightVNC has RPMs available (get the server RPM). There are others available so you may wish to do some research for yourself first.

Your distribution probably includes one as well. Check to see which packages you have installed.

Ok, let's see what we've got here:
VNC software on BOTH computers: Yes
VNC software RUNNING on BOTH computers: Yes

Alright, then. Do you have a firewall running?

I believe iptables (or possibly ipchains for you) is running by default. Consider shutting it off.
Code: [ Select ]
su -
service iptables stop
service network restart
  1. su -
  2. service iptables stop
  3. service network restart


You may be able to edit the firewall in the GUI as well, but I don't remember for RH9.

If you have a firewall in Windows, consider diabling that as well.

first of all you check vnc software is properly installed in both pc.
in windows pc both vnc server & vnc viewer is started properly & both linux & windows pc ping together.
in linux pc switched to kde desktop
in kde desktop environment go to system tools>moresystemtools>desktop sharing.
please creat personnel invitation it gives password to you.
then go to windows pc in vnc viewer type the ip add of linux server and give the password & connect

You do not have to install the VNC server on the Linux machine.
You do not have to be in KDE.
You should upgrade your system to an operating system written in this century.

Under Windows, make sure you have the TightVNC logo next to your clock. Right-click it and click "Properties", optionally assign a password to it and make sure all the other settings are where you want them.

Under Linux, get the vnc rpm: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/ ... 6.rpm.html

You may also want to get vino

Now that you have the right software installed, check your firewall, as root:
Code: [ Select ]
# iptables -L

If you're running a firewall, you'll see your rules here. If you aren't, you'll just see something like:
Code: [ Select ]
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target   prot opt source        destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target   prot opt source        destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target   prot opt source        destination
  1. Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
  2. target   prot opt source        destination
  3. Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
  4. target   prot opt source        destination
  5. Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
  6. target   prot opt source        destination

If the last, you don't have a firewall blocking this (at least, not one on the Linux machine). If the first, you need to locate your firewall rule set - being it's RedHat 9 I would guess this isn't a GUI anywhere, but perhaps an actual script or even a third party application.

As stated earlier, you need to upgrade that machine. If you were using a modern distribution, you'd probably find that you already had some form of VNC client installed.
