I use vncviewer (win32) to connect to my SuSE 11.3 box. The SuSE box has the “standard” xinetd started Xvnc server running (includes the -inetd switch).
My client (the vncviewer) has to go through a firewall with limited ports available and so I use the command line:
However, if there is a problem with the connection, such that the client disconnects, it seems that subsequent request to the Xvnc server create a new session/display. The text in the client window reports “nobody’s x11 desktop (host:1)”, then “…(host:2)”, then “…(host:3)” etc.
I have tried combining the display and the port parameters, like this:
- to no avail?
Can anyone suggest an alternative way of reconnecting to a broken vnc session?
