Re: VNCserver issues

Hi,

From the output above it looks like you do have something listening on 5950.

You can check this with:

netstat -an|grep 595|grep -i list

Have you tried to connect to the system with a vnc client?

Re: VNCserver issues

Here is the output

sys54:/ # netstat -an|grep 595|grep -i list
tcp 0 0 *.5951 *.* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *.5950 *.* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *.5953 *.* LISTEN
tcp 0 0 *.5952 *.* LISTEN

When i try conneting the server through VNC viewer i am not getting any response or errors it just vanishes(sys54:50)

Re: VNCserver issues

I haven't got VNC to test etc. or even used it in a long time.

But a shot in the dark, are you using:

sys54:50

In your host connection string?

I think how you are specifying it is referring to the display, so maybe try:

sys54:0 or sys54:1

If you want to try the port, I *think* you can do:

sys54::50 (I thought it defaulted to =>5900)
..though you could try the full port:
sys54:5950

HTH, Paul

Re: VNCserver issues

sys54:1 didnot help.I am getting ;Failed to connect to server.

I hope if i am able to telnet to the localhost with the ports succesfully,the issue will be resolved.Any solution for that?

Re: VNCserver issues

Shalom,

netstat -an | grep 59

You might find out first what port vnc is running on. The default on Linux/Unix is usually 5900 or 5901

Re: VNCserver issues

Have you tried using a browser to connect:

http://sys54:5950

You could also try putting in sys54's IP address, just in case you have a name resolution issue.

Re: VNCserver issues

I am trying to connect the server(sys54) from vnc viewer in my desktop(nawin011).
This is the output of netstat at this time from the server
