I cannot get the vnc service to begin. I made the /etc/systemd/vncserver@.service file. Here is my file configuration:

Unit]
Description=Remote desktop service (VNC) on port :%I
After=syslog.target network.target

[Service]
Type=forking
User=justine

ExecStartPre=-/usr/bin/vncserver -kill :%i
ExecStart=/usr/bin/vncserver :%i -localhost
PIDFile=/home/student/.vnc/%H:%i.pid
ExecStop=-/usr/bin/vncserver -kill :%i

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

I changed ownership to justine using chown command.
sudo systemctl start vncserver42.service gives the "service not found " error

I must be missing something. Any help apppreciated

    Hi @justineratliff

    What course is this related to? We recommend that you post course-specific questions in the course forum - this way, the course forum moderators will help out, and it will be helpful for other learners encountering the same issues - forums are not just a way to ask for help, but also a great resource, as you can search to see what other questions or issues were raised before, and if there are already solutions posted.

    Thank you,

    Please examine 5.8.3 for the syntax for starting the server on port 42 and 43, the @# tells systemd what port number to use.
