sorry, my reply was based on the web-java-viewer....
For the 3.x-version, you have to subtract 5900 from the used port number to get
the vnc-display number. Hence for you:
The current (version 4) viewer, has an option to use the portnumber in stead of
the display number. By head it is: `vncviewer myhost::7900` but check the
documentation to be sure.

IF you want to use telnet to test the port, use `telnet myhost 7900`. The reply
should say something like "RFB 003.003".
