@RocketsOO: Probably you're about there, networking is allright, launchpad is working (to some extent, but I think it does work). Is a VNC server already running on your desktop? Note that the default config of the viewer expects the display at TCP port 5901, which is "display #1" in VNC config lingo. Most VNC servers will come preconfigured for display #0, though.
@dasmoover: Thanks. Errm, does a native vncserver exist yet? Or were you talking about the client (it's in the attached ZIP file in the first posting)? I think creating a native vncserver would also be possible, but I did not come across one yet. Or did you mean something else with the attribute "native"?
