Port 177 is the XDMCP listener, not the port that Xvnc uses.

Client connects to ---> VNC port (59xx) which connects to ---> port 177
of Xserver

I don't know about port 177.

When you connect, you should connect something like

192.168.1.21:50

Leave of the initial 59. The software is already aware of that.

I am curious how I specify the host/port combination on the client
side.  I an using The TightVNC client and RPMs.  The grey screens
were with something like this:

192.168.1.21:5950

If I leave the port off or connect to 177, it fails.  Hmmm
I can't even connect to port 177.  Is that a problem?  Should
port 177 be enabled?
