x11vnc to any WINDOWS vnc viewer
Hello. I installed x11vnc, and I am trying to access the linux machine(running Suse 9.3) from a windows vnc viewer, within the same home LAN.
I've tried some windows vnc viewers such as tightVNC, ultravnc and win2vnc, but after trying to comunicate to the linux machine running x11vnc (on 192.168.2.3) all vnc viewers return the same message "Failed to connect to server 192.168.2.3:0". While trying to connect to the vncserver, netstat showed that the vnc viewer was sending a sync signal "192.168.2.3:5900 syn_sent".
On the other hand, I am running the x11vnc server without any password (with the hope to first make it work), and found somewhere that the option -nofb could make things easier; with and without -nofb or passwords I am unable to start a vnc session.
I ran netstat on the PC where x11vnc was running, and did not see any port 5900.
The LAN network is working, since I can access with samba the filesystem on the windows PC.
It seems to me that there are some extra errors which I can not find, does any one know where to find any error log?
