For some reason I can never seem to get the desktop sharing going on Fedora. I have F12 installed on the ESXi server at work, but I also tried this on my laptop at home this weekend same result.

Iím currently following the Fedora 12 users guide, section 15.2 KDE

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/user-guide/f12/en-US/pdf/Fedora_12_User_Guide.pdf

I can ping

When I open Desktop Sharing (Krfb) I go to set an invitation, connect in TightVNC 192.168.128.38:5900, Failed to Connect. If I goto security> Allow Uninvited Connections, I set a password, same thing.

Iím using the most current version of TightVNC and I know itís works because I donít have any problem VNC into my OS 10.5 box.

Ideas?

LOL, was going to post some Ideas, until I read the last line.

For the potential benefit of others, what was the problem ?
