Hi,

I don't use VNC myself - but what changes have you made to that config, and have you tried to revert those?

Perhaps it's best to enable SSH and confirm that works if only to avoid locking yourself out completely.

Could you kindly confirm that you're using the same account details for both VNC and at the machine itself (and whether that's root).

Finally, how did you create the VNC account - I seem to recall that VNC users don't always equate to local (/etc/passwd) users (that would explain why you can't login locally!).

Let us know.....
