Hi pawlowicz_a,

can you post some more detail please?

- What command do you use to start the vnc server on your linux box?
- What command do you use to access the vnc server remotely?
- What are the error messages (if any) you receive when trying to access the server?
- Have you tried switching off the firewall to see if that's where the error originates?
