vncserver & vncviewer
In chapter 30 Remote Graphical Login, it's suggested we try running vncserver, followed by vncviewer:1.
Each time I try vncviewer:1 (I have also tried 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc), I get a GUI popup "Unable connect to socket: Connection refused (111)". I looked around online and didn't find a ton of useful info. Is there some configuration file out there that I need to update for this to work?

vncviewer:1 console output:
