yum install vnc-server


Package tigervnc-server-module-1.1.0-5.e16_4.1.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

In CentOS 6.x you need to install the tigervnc-server (not tigervnc-server-module) package.

On the CentOS Wiki ( it's noted:

If you are running CentOS 6, the server is: tigervnc-server not: vnc-server

Hope this helps.
