I dont know how to open a port
make sure /etc/services has a line with vino-server or vnc and port 5900 or 5901 or whichever.
netstat -ntlp | grep 5900
tcp 0 0 :::5900 :::* LISTEN 9342/vino-server
i think its Ok ?
Looks OK, but I was thinking from another machine, you would do
or whatever your machine's ip address is; I guess it comes to the same thing.
I suppose you could look in the logs for the error messages when you try to connect; there might be something there. I haven't used vino in a while, but I seem to recall that when you first install it you have to click something in the GUI interface to make it go. Usually I just start vncserver with the command "vncserver" after using ssh to get in, and with the ports tunneled. Sorry I don't have any other bright ideas.
