Comment(by wdn@…):

 I am new to Macs with most of my experience in the Linux environment.  So
 I do
 not know how well the vnc server built into OS X works for my needs.  Nor
 do I
 know how to access it.  Before downloading tigervnc via Macports, I
 checked to
 see if vncserver and vncviewer were available in my path.  Since I did not
 them, I assumed vnc must be an add on via Macports or one of the other
 environments.  There were several versions of vnc available through
 including cots, realvnc, tigervnc and tightvnc.  I chose tigervnc because
 it is
 what is used in Fedora linux distros and I will be interacting with
 linux systems via my Mac.  But perhaps tightvnc or realvnc would work as
 I'm not sure.  I use tightvnc on a Windows laptop and that seems to work

 Do you have any advice on how to proceed?  It does not look like a fix for
 tigervnc will happen very quickly.
