I have Started the Remote desktop Admin (VNC) from Yast and Open the Firewall
i am tring to connect to the openSuse (GNOME) from my windows through tightVNC viewer
it ask for the Authentication for the color managed device i gave the root password
then i can see the SUSE login screen,
i selected “not in the list?”
entered the “root” as user name
and as i press enter it say “Authentication error”
i have one more user called “Admin”
if i select the “Admin” its not taking password and says “Authentication error”
did i miss any configuration?
Please, at least start questions with telling which openSUSE version you ask about.
BTW, you should never login in directly as root.
I am using openSUSE 13.1
Basically its not allowing the “Admin” user also…
When i click on the “Admin” it says Authentication Error… not taking password for the admin user.
I’ve been working on something related recently and noticed there are a number of settings that if changed might allow root login.
Search your machine for “tightvnc.conf” You should find one in /etc/ and a number of others in the various User directories. Read the comments, what you want may require a complex combination of settings (eg PAM on or off?) and any configurations in the User directories will over-ride what is in the system-wide file (/etc/).
You may find it’s not worth the trouble to try to login with root, just login with a normal User and su or sudo.
