I have RealVNC on Windows trying to connect to xVNC on Linux, and the
session apparantly fails, but with no indication why..
On the Windows end I have RealVNC Personal Edition 4.1.2 on Windows
2000, and it can connect to other hosts. On the Linux end I have SuSE
SLES9 host running xVNC. When I start the Viewer and fill in the server
address (10.100.105.14::5901), I get a window that pops up for just a
second saying something like "attempting to connect", then the window
closes with no other indication of a problem.
If I try to connect to other ports (5900, 5902, etc.) I get "connection
I can connect to the Linux Java port (5801) with my browser with no
problem. And I can use the VNC Viewer to access other (Windows) systems.
My /etc/xinetd.d/vnc entry for 5901 looks like:
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = nobody
server = /usr/X11R6/bin/Xvnc
server_args = :42 -inetd -once -query localhost -geometry
type = UNLISTED
port = 5901
And for each time I've tried to start a session, in /var/log/xinetd.log
I have the following one line entry of:
05/12/6 "at" 16:33:33: START: vnc1 from=10.100.105.1
Any suggestions on what's wrong or where to look?
