I have installed XEN 3.1 on Slack12 like Dom0 and a Debian Sarge like DomU. I have installed all vnc component in order to use a X display under the DomU. I start vncserver like this under domU:

vncserver :1

and this work fine...So i try to start a vncviewer like this:

vncviewer :1


vncviewer my_ip:1

Any command work and return this error:

"Error: Can't open display:"

I read some help that have suggested this procedure but I obtain this error....what I wrong?

I have installed XDM also, like this:

apt-get install xdm
echo ':0 /usr/bin/Xvnc /usr/bin/Xvnc -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24' \ > /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers

Once this has been done start the manager with:
/etc/init.d/xdm stop
/etc/init.d/xdm start

TNX in advance.
