[plug] Remote desktop question

what is in /etc/sysconfig/vncservers?
VNCSERVERARGS[1]="-geometry 1024x768 -depth 16"
The above will setup port 5901

And there may be two packages around for vnc, vnc-server and vino. Both will 
use port 5900 onwards by default.  I never used vino, but had vnc-server 
going on redhat(Fedora). I seem to remember that I had some problems with 
remote desktop when tinkering around with fedora, but it is quite a while 
ago?. Found this one in my notes 
May be this helps.

Last millenium? Name rings a bell but can't place you. Alcoa? Newcrest? DEET? 
I'm getting older.
