VNC Client at XP / Server at Fedora Core 4 install question
I have VNC Server installed at my FC4 machine. When I do "yum list installed vnc" it shows both vnc.i386, and vnc-server.i386 installed. Also when I type at the command prompt "vn+tab" it shows I have following file:
I also installed vnc client at my laptop (running on Windows XP professional), when I run the client it asks me to type VNC server information using "host:display" format - I dont know whats that mean. but I tried to use the IP address of my machine where FC 4 running (VNC server), but its says login failed.
I am able to ping to my FC4 machine from my laptop, also I am able to telnet, ftp etc...
Also, I ran vncserver - its created couple of files such as :
Created default startup script in /root/.vnc/xstartup
starting application specifid in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Can anyone help me how to get around this problem ? Do I have to setup anything on the server, or client side ? Please note VNC server is on my FC4 machine, and VNC client is on my laptop (XP).
No. I tried running server first, by typing vncserver, and then I see a text message like vncserver:2, or sometimes vncserver:3. Depending on what I see, I type at the vncviewer "IP:2", or "IP:3", and then I connect.
Hi I beleive this guide will help you, it contains information on editing the file which will show the full desktop. I beleive this information can be found on page two towards the bottom of the page. The link is http://www.notgotaclue.co.uk/art-winandlin.htm
I am sort of in the same situation... However I am able to get connected through VNC, however on FC4 I get this message asking me to Accept or Decline the incoming connection. I have not been able to find a way to auto-accept the connection since it prompts me for my passwd anyways. Any hints?
