Can't Use TightVNC to Connect to SuSE from Windows


Have TightVNC 1.3.10.0 installed on WXP. Can connect to Ubuntu 9.10 system running natively on its own system without problem. Have OpenSuSE 11.2 running in a VMWare Server VM on a W2K3 server on yet another system. SuSE VM is web-aware, I can get out to the web and regularly receive SuSe updates. SuSE VM has its own IP address which it got from DHCP. I can ping the SuSE VM in the W2K3 server from my WXP machine. W2K3 firewall is disabled.

When I point TightVNC at the SuSE VM, it says it can't connect. When I open a browser page to the SuSE VM at port 5801, I connect, and can log in and work as usual. When I click on the options tab at the top of the screen, a window opens titled "TightVNC Options".

So why can't I connect natively using TightVNC? Why do I find all the weird problems?

Try other services like telnet ftp or tftp and such to see if some other issue.

Also we might need to know how you configured nic access in vm.

SSH, FTP and TFTP all fail to connect. Only browser interface works.

Turned off SuSE firewall in Yast, so now SUSE firewall and W2K3 firewall are both down. Still, TFTP times out, SSH says network error, connection refused. Can ping the VM just fine.

Forgot: network adapter is configured as "bridged" in the vm.
