Tigervnc on Fedora 13


I am trying to get vnc working on my fedora 13 box. All machines are on my local network.

The fedora box has two interfaces.

I installed the tigervnc packages.

Changed the username in /etc/sysconfig/vncservers

opened 5902 tcp and udp in iptables

started the service (OK)

Installed the client on my windows machine, and tried to access the box and get:

unable connect to socket: Connection refused (10061)


Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.


My machine is running at runlevel 3 also, do I need to step up to 5 for this to work?

Hi -

1. Yes, runlevel 3 is fine. You absolutely don't need to have runlevel 5 (your GUI desktop) running in order to have (another, different GUI desktop) running with VncServer.

2. Q: Have you tried running the vncviewer client locally, on the same PC as your VNC server? That would be a good test...

3. Q: Have you looked at the VNC error log

4. Q: Exactly how are you trying to connect?
EXAMPLE:
192.168.1.100:2
<= Will use port 5902, to connect to display #2

Remember, each "display" corresponds to a port:
0 = 5900
1 = 5901
2 = 5902
...

'Hope that helps

That's it!

I was trying to connect to 10.0.0.2:5902, soon as I put 10.0.0.2:2 it worked... I never would have guessed that one!
