    - VPS server running CentOS 6, 32 bits.

    - Installed VNC server by doing: yum install tigervnc-server

    - Installed GNOME by doing: yum groupinstall "Desktop"

    - Edited vnc setting: Changed the vncservers="2:" to "1"

    - Started listening: service vncserver start

    - Start UltraVNC viewer

    - Failed to connnect!

    Not sure which step I missed, please help.

    check the vnc server log.

    is it really running?

    netstat -tupln | grep vnc

    THANK YOU FIXIDIXI!

    After I ran that code I was able to see what port my VNC is listening to and now I'm finally able to connect to it =)
