Can TightVNC control a Linux box using a Java-enabled browser and nothing more, or was I dreaming when I was controlling my Winders box this way (which I was able to get up and running in about 10 minutes)?
I have discovered the following behavior:
With KDE Desktop Sharing "allow uninvited connections" turned on:
Port 5800 - Open
Port 5901 - Open
With "allow uninvited connections" turned off:
Port 5800 - Closed
Port 5901 - Closed
It doesn't seem to matter what rules are set up with iptables. KDE Desktop Sharing makes its own rules.
I can sorta get the machines talking to each other but keep getting "Desktop Sharing - The remote user has closed the connection." messages on the Linux box.
Every time I start up tightvncserver I get:
Warning: mycomputer:n is taken because of /tmp/.Xn -lock
Remove this file if there is no X server mycomputer:n
where n increments each time tightvncserver is started.
