xfs with vnc on OpenBSD/RedHat Linux

Hi,

I'm having problems getting VNC to use an external XFS server.

I have two machines:

One RedHat machine which is running XFS and VNCSERVER. This uses XFS ok when
I modify one of the lines in /usr/bin/vncserver to read $cmd = "Xvnc -fp
tcp/localhost:7100 :$displayNumber";

I also have an OpenBSD server which is running VNCSERVER and I want to
connect to XFS on the RedHat machine. This is the machine I can't get to
work. VNC itself works fine, but I can't connect to the XFS server. The xfs
port is open to external clients, as I can telnet to port 7100 on the redhat
machine.

The line in /usr/local/bin/vncserver on the OpenBSD machine currently reads:
$cmd = "Xvnc -fp tcp/redhat:7100 :$displayNumber";

although I have also tried the following to no avail:
$cmd = "Xvnc -fp tcp/192.168.1.101:7100 :$displayNumber";
$cmd = "Xvnc -fp tcp/redhat.sabetonline.com:7100 :$displayNumber";

redhat and redhat.sabetonline.com are in /etc/hosts, both are pingable and
as I mentioned earlier, the port is clearly open to connections as I can
telnet to port 7100. TCP is enabled on the RedHat machine's XFS config file.

Can anyone offer any tips?

Many thanks,

Louis
