TigerVNC - No password configured for VNC Auth
 
I am currently running Slackware64 14.0 with TigerVNC 1.1.0. I had this working previously, but I can not connect to my computer via my Android tablet within my own network. When I try to connect I get an error : "No password configured for VNC Auth".

I checked in my /home/*user*/.vnc directory and I see the passwd file there. I have deleted, I've used vncpasswd to recreate the passwd file, I have deleted it again, ran vncserver again to put in a new password...but when I try to connect I continue to get the same error.

What am I missing?

Are you using x0vncserver? If so, you need to explicitly specify the password file.

Code:

$ x0vncserver -display=:0 -PasswordFile=/home/username/.vnc/passwd

I was just using vncserver. I will try your suggestion and see if it works.

When I try to run x0vncserver I get the following error:

Code:


unable to bind listening socket: Address already in use (98)

Checking with what is listening, nothing is listening on 5900. Only this :

Code:


bash-4.2$ lsof -i -n | grep LISTEN
ssh    5437 jamesgt    4u  IPv6  85296      0t0  TCP [::1]:socks (LISTEN)
ssh    5437 jamesgt    5u  IPv4  85297      0t0  TCP 127.0.0.1:socks (LISTEN)

You may need to run the command as root. Use su or sudo.

Try this also:

Code:

# netstat -tulpn

Code:

# netstat -tulpn

That tells me X itself is listening on 5900. Where do I stop that from happening?

Ok, I found it. In xorg.conf was "load vnc", deleted the line, restarted X and now tigervnc works as it should. Awesome! Thank you very much!

You're welcome. I'm glad you were able to find it.

no password configured for vnc auth
 
Hi,
I can connect to my server through windows and linux, but I cannot connect from a specific windows machine to the server. The strange thing is that I get this message, although vnc works fine. Any ideas.

If you like VNC (despite it's "dirtiness) you might well love https://www.nomachine.com/

First of all:

Next time, create your own new thread instead of digging up an old closed thread, it is considered to be against LinuxQuestions etiquette.
Your case is different, only the error message is the same.

Check https://confluence.slac.stanford.edu...roubleshooting for some causes for this specific error.
