VNC/Fedora 6


I have a linux box in my office as well as a windows box. I have tried setting up the vnc server on the linux box so that I can hit it from my windows box. I have not had much luck at all, while I have been able to hit it I get something that reminds me of a commador 64 terminal. Is there some other piece of software that I need to install that will allow me to see my linux desktop inside the vnc viewer on my windows machine?

Thank you,
JK

What form of VNC are you running on the windows box?

There are probably a dozen different ones, which one?

The executable is vnc-4_1_2-x86_win32_viewer.exe I downloaded it from the real vnc site at http://www.realvnc.com.

Hope that's helpful,
JK

Not sure but it may have something to do with the program. Its is currently on version 4.3 and you appear to be running 4.1.2.

lazlow,
I figured out what the issue is. I never changed the window manager from the default one which is "tmw". I install fluxbox and restarted the vncserver and the window is much better. Although, I don't know much about the configuration of fluxbox so, I would greatly appreciate it if you had some good places to go get very basic instructions or tutorials. Anyway thank you for taking the time to help.

Jeff
