comment Run a GUI application in background and reconnect later
I can run individual apps in background and view them in VNC but gnome-panel or gnome-session close when connection closes.

comment Run a GUI application in background and reconnect later
Now VNC is showing only a blank black screen. Usually when i start gnome-session it displays via X locally. How do I start it on remote so that I can see it in VNCViewer.

Now I understand your point. That must work great. Start a VNC Viewer on remote system and display it locally on client via X (Xming etc). That is a great idea.

-localhost: Only allow connections from the same machine. Useful if you use SSH and want to stop non-SSH connections from any other hosts. See the guide to using VNC with SSH.

From the duplicate question I found that I have to tunnel through SSH connection to connect to VNC server. There is no xvnc4viewer for CentOS. I am trying to connect CentOS from windows machine and all ports but SSH are blocked. Sorry, can not understand what you are suggesting.

I have installed Xvnc (TigerVNC) by following instructions from krizna.com/centos/install-vnc-on-centos-6 On my Windows client I have installed UltraVNC Viewer. Default port 5900 for VNC is probably blocked. Also it does not allow me to use port 22 to connect with remote machine with UltraVNC as remote::22

I can only connect with SSH port (22). I am not sure how many other ports are open, because many are blocked by institute.
