I've not been able to get it to connect when running the server under
WINE. Even resetting the port to 5901 or some other port number and
stopping other vnc services such as vino etc. If I set to prompt to ask
I can tell that the connection is being made (the prompt will come up on
the server machine), but after that it simply closes.

I use the UltraVNC client and krdc when connecting to UltraVNC windows
machines and it works great. However, coming the other way from another
linux machine to linux machine I just use krdc (even though I use gnome
- it's a *much* better client than Gnome-RDP). Krdc also works much
better when vnc'ing into a windows box that is running UltraVNC -- the
only thing that you can't do with krdc is file transfer and chat.

Any particular reason that you are trying to run the UltraVNC _server_
on your linux box?
