Tichondrius, I observed a strange thing. Afetr starting the xinetd service, If I issue the command
$ vncviewer localhost:0
I am getting the current desktop screen but not the login screen which I obtained last time by issuing that big command.
Update : This occurred due to enabling ubuntu's built-in remote desktop feature. When I turn off this feature, the above command yields nothing. But still vncviewer localhost:1 gave the error msg. I thought if this remote desktop feature is interfering with the vncserver setup, but it's not the case.
Moreover, I should add that right now I am working in gnome desktop and my /etc/xinetd.d/Xvnc file is exactly identical to the config. you alluded to in post #14. And still, the error msg. with vncviewer localhost:1. So using kDE desktop is not an issue. I shall follow method of elimination to pinpoint the trouble, if I can. If anybody else can help us, it will be really appreciated.
Kacheng, sorry, I could not help you since I am a novice in this regard but you can try to install the tightvnc java-client from the thread I linked to in my previous post. You need to enable ubuntu's built-in remote desktop so that it can work and of course if you are behind a router, you need to fwd those ports.
