I'm still having problems figuring out this vncts setup though? What's the path to the relevant log files? Is there a test I can perform to find out if the ports on the firewall are open ok for this? My /etc/sysconfig/iptables file includes this line to open those ports:
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 5900:5905 -j ACCEPT
Is this proper? The /etc/xinetd.d/vncts file says to add localhost to the /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess There was no Xaccess file in the /etc/X11/xdm/ folder so I created an Xaccess file and simply added the word localhost to it... but I suppose it's not that simple.

tunnel your vnc connection over ssh. It's no more difficult to set up than
"regular" vnc and it's a lot more secure.
