You might have another kind of firewall installed on your VPS then. APF is just one of thousands of firewalls that could have been installed on your VPS(though APF is VERY popular).i get an Unrecognized service for that. So i assume not installed.
any further ideas?
Ok - are you using VNC viewer on your PC to view your VPS?just checked with KnownHost and was told the only thing is: iptables
ran command: /sbin/service iptables stop
but to no prevail
yep that is what im doing . just get a
unable to connect to host: Connection refused (10061)
rm -rf /tmp/.X1* vncserver
My VPS serves no purpose at all except my fiddlings so I will probably be testing out fluxbox and I can try out xfce as well but I'm not familiar with them so it may take me longer to get setup.I believe VNC uses port 5900. I will increment based on which screen you are using. So screen 1 would be 5901 etc.
Has anyone tried this with the Xfce desktop? A little lighter on resources then KDE but would provide about the same functionality.

Hi Ronnie,What are the benefits in getting a GUI when you can administer the server through a command line?
Does Centos has an admin interface in GUI that will make it easier to add accounts, create domains, or mysql databases that will alleviate the need to have, say, webmin or cpanel?
