Error 100061 is the Winsock 2 error for "the server refused the connection"
- it's not ubiquitous, it specifically means that the server machine won't
accept a connection on the specified port. The most likely cause is that
there is nothing on that port to connect to. In this case, that's probably
because your Solaris Xvnc process is not remoting display zero, but display
1, 2 or 3, or etc
