error reading information on service vncts

Still kinda new here, though getting way better and enjoying the process

this is the error I get when setting up Tiger vnc for remote ssh login.


[peter@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost peter]# /sbin/chkconfig vncts on
error reading information on service vncts: No such file or directory
[root@localhost peter]#

You installed tigervnc-server using yum? The service is called vncserver not vncts.

I have tigervnc-server installed and configured for a SSH tunnel,
the problem is that as part of the ssh setup ( I was following a guide from online) wanted me to restart that file name, I have not yet got SSH working as part of vnc

any help?
what useful info can I post?

Yes but how did you install tigervnc-server? If you installed it using yum install then the init script name is not vncts but vncserver so that's what you need to use. If you didn't install it using yum install then, congratulations, you just broke your system, undo all the changes you made and then use yum install instead.

fair enough

well the system is not broken I did install it through yum,

the vnc server has been restarted many times

it seems that the ssh tunnel is misconfigured

what is the proper syntax for a client loging into a ssh vnc service? I have seen log in info which included much more than an Ip address and a port #
I am new to ssh and apreciate all the help I am getting.

You don't say what guide you are following? Have you read the Wiki VNC article? If not, does that help? If not, then what are you following?
