Connecting to RHL from Windows?

We are experiencing a few difficulties connecting to VNC on a RHL box from
Windows (including web-based connection). Basically, at server :5900 the
server does not respond to any connection. If we create a new session by
using the command vncserver :2, we are asked to authenticate (obviously
when connection to server:2), but the screen shown is just a terminal
screen. We were hoping to be able to access the full GUI as we can with
other Linux servers (including a fedora box) as we can access what VNC
gives us via telnet. Where are we going wrong?
p.s., if we start the server by using vncserver it shifts to the next
available port (1,2,3,4,etc...) and if we try vncserver :5900 we get a
message "VNC server is already running as :5900"
Any help would be much appreciated!
