GlacierHi all,
        after configuring my redhat7.0 for vnc access from a win98 =
desktop. i get this error message ("Invalid Protocol") after i type in =
servername:5950 and press enter. It doesn't work for other ports =
too.etc:5951,5952,5953,5954

what seems to be the problem? i am also getting there....
