Error 10061 on one of two systems

Thanks for the response. A couple of things, tho. I have two systems
sitting side by side on my desk. On one (the old one) I can connect to the
VNC server running on the UNIX system. Then if I close that connection and
on the new PC try to connect to the UNIX server, I cannot. So there must
be something listening on that port on the UNIX host and there can't be a
problem on that end (such as firewall rules) since I can successfully
connect with the old system.
Also, when the 'old' box connects I get an entry in $HOME/.vnc/aker:1.log
(aker is the UNIX system). When I try to connect with the new XP, no
entries are made to any log files in that directory. Also, altho I have
opened up all ports for VNC in my new pc's firewall, I have also had it
fail with the firewall disabled so it's not that either.
How does vncpasswd come into play? How does the server process:
rbmiller 322 1 0 12:30:25 ? 0:13 Xvnc :1 -desktop aker:1 ()
-httpd /usr/local/vnc/classes -auth /export/home/rbm
authenticate the connection? Is this perhaps why VNC is refusing the
connection? If so, how do I make my new computer able to authenticate?
Thanks in advance,
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
