I am trying to access my Centos 7 server's desktop so I installed ...

[plankton@localhost ~]$ rpm -q --info tigervnc-server

Summary     : A TigerVNC server
Description :
The VNC system allows you to access the same desktop from a wide
variety of platforms.  This package includes set of utilities
which make usage of TigerVNC server more user friendly. It also
contains x0vncserver program which can export your active
X session.

Then I started the vncserver like so:

[plankton@localhost ~]$ vncserver

You will require a password to access your desktops.

xauth:  file /home/plankton/.Xauthority does not exist

New 'localhost.localdomain:1 (plankton)' desktop is localhost.localdomain:1

Creating default startup script /home/plankton/.vnc/xstartup
Starting applications specified in /home/plankton/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/plankton/.vnc/localhost.localdomain:1.log

vncserver -list has this output:

[plankton@localhost ~]$ vncserver -list

TigerVNC server sessions:

:1              6488

On my windows 10 system I install the vnc client from here: https://www.realvnc.com/download/get/1861/

when I try to connect from my windows system to my Centos 7 server I get this error.

I have disabled selinux, and execute iptables --flush as root and I am using the correct IP address. I do not get prompted for a password. Can anyone help me out?



Oops! I needed to specify the port 5901 like so:
