Thank you, I think you put on the right path...

netstat shows no port for vnc at all, unless I execute vncserver

as root, I issue the command

service vncserver restart
Shutting down VNC server:                             [  OK  ]
Starting VNC server:                                       [  OK  ]

service vncserver status
Xvnc is stopped


Does anyone have any ideas why vncserver won't start?

No errors in syslog.
