setup vnc server on fedora

# assume we are setting it up to vnc as bsmith
su -

# as root: verify current ip address

# as root: install if needed
yum install vnc-server

# as root: uncomment out 2 lines, replace myusername with bsmith
vim /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

# as bsmith: set vnc password

# as root: generates ~/.vnc/xstartup
service vncserver start

# as root: sets service to startup with machine
chkconfig vncserver on

# as root: uncomment out line 4 and 5
vim /bsmith/.vnc/xstartup

# as root: applies settings
service vncserver start

# as root: open up port in firewall, note vnc is insecure by protocol
vim /etc/sysconfig/iptables

# as root: apply firewall changes, vnc=insecure so better to use over lan
service iptables restart
