Just read what the comment is telling you. You need to change
"myusername" to the user that you want the X server to run as. Then
vncpasswd to set a password for the server.
e.g. For user bob:
vncpasswd bob bobspassword
It should then work, just vnc to x.x.x.x:1 . Don't worry about the port
(5800), the client should get that right by default.
(cc'd to the list so that everyone can benefit.)
