windows vnc client and linux vnc server problem


Hi All,

I installed the vnc server on my Redhat linux 9.0. I have a windows xp serves as the vnc client. If i try to connect to my linux box, i can connect, i can access the programs,etc through vnc client from windows. But on the linux box, the window didn't change on all the things i've done remotely.

i connect from windows xp e.g. 192.168.229.100:1
+ password.

how can i resolve this problem???????


thanks for the reply.

This is the normal behavior of vnc. It connects to :1 display while your actual X-server runs on display:0. If you want to use the real display you need x11vnc

Cheers

I downloaded the package of x11vnc, however, i can't install it. I encountered problem on ./configure command. is there any rpm package of x11vnc?.

Also, you can use the vnc already installed to get the :0 display.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'm still experimenting it. I was able to run it but it prompts me for a password. I run vncpasswd and inputted the password but no success yet. Upon reviewing the docs, i already figured out how to set it up. BTW, where can i see these things?

Section "Screen"
...
Option "SecurityTypes" "VncAuth"
Option "UserPasswdVerifier" "VncAuth"
Option "PasswordFile" "/root/.vnc/passwd"
EndSection

Are you asking what file to edit for these settings?
The FAQ says
Code:
The parameters listed in the Xvnc manual page can be set as options in XF86Config.
but depending on your distro, its most likey the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

I know now where I can edit the file. /etc/X11/XF86Config. However, I want now, that without signing on yet, the x0vncserver will automatically startup. From a vncclient, I will be the one to login as i did on windows. So it means that the x0vncserver is running on background.

SOS!!!!

thanks

I'm not sure. I recommend following the instructions in the faq, specifically where it says to add the load "vnc" in the driver section.
The x0vncserver is an alternate program that isn't as efficient and only recommended when you are not able to use the vnc driver from some reason.
I use the vnc driver all day long every day. Works great and does exactly what you are asking.
