Thread: VNC on Opensuse 11.4

  1. #1

    Default VNC on Opensuse 11.4

    Hi there,

    I want to administrate a network from my home computer. Suppose this infrastructure:

    HOME: Opensuse 12.1
    MOUSEHOLE: Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS
    REMOTE: Opensuse 11.4

    Only MOUSEHOLE can be reached via the internet, so I ssh-pipe the connection:

    ssh -C -L 5901:localhost:5901 ME@MOUSEHOLE
    and there:
    ssh -C -L 5901:localhost:5901 ME@REMOTE

    With that connection, I open a second console and start
    vncviewer localhost::5901

    and get to the KDE-Login on REMOTE ... but when I login, the connection suddenly closes.

    Console log:

    Connected to RFB server, using protocol version 3.7

    What's the problem?

    Btw: VNC is enabled via YaST on HOME and REMOTE. "vncviewer localhost::5901" (ie VNC from HOME to HOME) works.

    -=WELCOME=- new poster, but i'm trying to figure out what your problem
    has to do with virtualization?

    are any of HOME, MOUSEHOLE or REMOTE running in a VM (what version of
    which VM?) or hosting a VM (which?) that you believe might be the root
    cause of your problem..

    and, if you do believe it is a VM problem, please explain in what way,
    and what error messages lead you to that conclusion....thanks.

    or, is this a straight networking issue (if so, you should PM a monitor
    and ask it be moved to the correct forum)..
