VNC server appears as started in the Services Control Panel. I am going to
describe the precise sequence of steps that led to the connection refused

- Since the problem server is on a remote site, I have accessed to it
through VNC Server 3.3.7 and installed VNC Server 4.0b on it (a copy of the
installation program is on the server);
- The installation was successful: at this point both versions of VNC server
were running;
- At this point, I have stopped VNC Server 3.3.7: the connection was closed;
- I have tried to connect to the problem PC but I was prompted the
connection refused message: a guy on the remote site confirmed that VNC
Server 4 was running while VNC Server 3.3.7 was stopped.
- VNC Server 4 was uninstalled and connection re-established by means of VNC

Connection refused means that nothing is listening on that port on that
machine.  Are you sure that VNC Server is running?
