Using ubuntu on client and server machines - installed the vnc4server on one machine
via the directions here...
Installed the vncviewer on another machine
the directions say to log in with the hostname:
However the vncserver will only accept logins with the ip address of the host - not the hostname
This gets me into the host, however not in to the working desktop on the server.
I get another window - this is what it shows on the title of the VNC window:
If I run a ps on the vncviewer window it displays the processes running on that server
if I run this on the server it will kill the window of the client:
vncserver -kill packard-desktop:1
It this just how the vnc process works with ubuntu - I was hoping for something that
would view and countrol the actual screen that I was working on
What changes have to be made to the vnc4server to accept requests for the host name
