Have you succeeded in this setup at RH73?

What on `telnet machine 5950`?
This should give the rfb message: "RFB 003" or such.

If you run `Xvnc :4 -query localhost`, and connect with `vncviewer 4`. Do
you get a login environment in the vncviewer area? If you get the login, you
should check the /etc/inetd or /etc/xinetd parts. If you do not get a login
session it is in the dhcp or display manager area (the other files).
I don't know details on debian, but for HP-UX, not all users can use the
network. In the /etc/inetd or /etc/xinetd area, the user nobody shoud not be
used, better use a user that has networking privileges. You can try:
- system users like sys with id's between 1 and 100
- normal users with ids between 1000 and 60000
- special users with ids over 60000 (near 2^32)
