xvnc problems


Hello all,

I know there is plenty on the net for this topic, but none of the info I have come across addresses this issue.

Specs: opensuse 11.0 64bit (gnome)

Installed the remote desktop (xvnc) through yast, opened holes in router firewall 5800:5803, 5901. I disabled the local linux firewall (for debugging) and can connect via windows tight vnc client on :1

If I try to connect via port 5901 instead of display 1, it does not connect. Is this normal?

As far as the http client(XP IE 7 w/ java 1.6) goes.... no dice. I can get the java app to load on all 3 ports (5801:5803), but the screen is blank. There are no errors reported in the client-side java console.

I have the password option checked in the control center, but it never asks for a password.

I'm stumped at this point... any ideas? permissions???

I'm sure you're going to want to see some config files. Just let me know which ones.

Thanks,
WT

/etc/sysconfig/vncservers will be a good starting point for me(let me have a look)
Also can you telnet to those ports?

Telneting to those ports seems fine. Although, I do get an error on 5901. That is probably why I'm only able to connect through display 1. Let's hold off on that for a sec.

As far as the /etc/sysconfig/vncservers goes, it's not there. So that might be the whole issue.

Again, this is for Xvnc on opensuse 11.0 64bit. Could this file be located elsewhere? I googled for an alternate location, but I did not see one. Other opensuse users mention this file as well, so I'm inclined to think this file was either somehow deleted or was not part of the package.

Do you have a sample file?

What would you recommend?

AFAIK, each connection to the VNC server is made from 5900 and up. So the first client would be 5900, the second one 5901, etc. For VNC via browser (Java VNC) it starts at 5800, but uses the same scheme.

My best guess is that you need to open port 5900, or try accessing the VNC server as :2, though I don't know if this would solve your problem. Have a try and let us know if this made a change at all. Of course Windows can access VNC via :1, but of course Windows is beyond common logic.

Alright, how are you running vncserver? which user? whats in their ~/.vnc/ folder?
try #locate vncservers, it looks like:
Quote:
...
...
VNCSERVERS="1:user1 2:user2 etc."
VNCSERVERARGS[1]="-geometry 800x600 -localhost"
VNCSERVERARGS[2]="-geometry 800x600"
