    IPv6 support in VNC Server E4.1.7/P4.1.2

VNC Server E4.1.7 & P4.1.2 are fully IPv6-aware, but is shipped with 
IPv6 support disabled by default, for security reasons. IPv6 can be 
enabled by setting "InTransports=IPv6,IPv4" (the default being IPv4 
only), either on the command-line when starting vncserver under Unix

Ok.  we have vnc-server-4.1.2-9.el5.i386.rpm, so it SHOULD support IPv6.

Don't know how to add a setting to the command-line, as I rund VNCserver 
via the service command, but I added it to /etc/sysconfig/vncservers:

InTransports="IPv6"   (note I also tried without the quotes)

and netstat -na|grep 5902

shows vncserver only running on IPv4 and I can only connect to it via IPv4.

So what am I missing?????
