Hi
How does one re-enable vnc remote administration on sles 11 sp1

VNC was working, and now clients fail to connect.
UNVC reports connection failed

I used telnet to verify connection
on a working host
telnet host 5901 RETURNS RFB 003.007

on the failed host
it returns to the command prompt

i have tried rcxdm restart and it has not helped

the xinetd.log has the following entry for the failed attempt
11/11/30@08:24:36: START: vnc1 from=192.168.10.10
11/11/30@08:24:36: EXIT: vnc1 status=1 duration=0(sec)

Xorg.0.log does not have any entries that indicate the problem

Yast >> remote administration reports firewall open on all ports
and restarts the service but still no access or response

tks

That's what happens to me if I start the server in init 3....try
restarting the server in init 5.

Thanks it was a nice thought

it is currently starting in runlevel 5, and is at this level now
a restart doesn't resolve the issue.
gnome and x windows works at console,
vncviewer works from command prompt to local host

external connections cannot be made, ports open
hosts.allow allows all services on the local subnet


i have 2 out of 12 hosts that this has problem has occurred on in the
past couple weeks
a rebuild fixes it but not a very nice fix in a production environment
