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
ssh -C -L 5901:localhost:5901 ME@REMOTE
With that connection, I open a second console and start
and get to the KDE-Login on REMOTE … but when I login, the connection suddenly closes.
Connected to RFB server, using protocol version 3.7 Enabling TightVNC protocol extensions No authentication needed Desktop name "nobody's x11 desktop (REMOTE:1)" VNC server default format: 16 bits per pixel. Least significant byte first in each pixel. True colour: max red 31 green 63 blue 31, shift red 11 green 5 blue 0 Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*" to type FontStruct Using default colormap which is TrueColor. Pixel format: 32 bits per pixel. Least significant byte first in each pixel. True colour: max red 255 green 255 blue 255, shift red 16 green 8 blue 0 ShmCleanup called Using shared memory PutImage Same machine: preferring raw encoding vncviewer: VNC server closed connection ShmCleanup called
What’s the problem?
Btw: VNC is enabled via YaST on HOME and REMOTE. “vncviewer localhost::5901” (ie VNC from HOME to HOME) works.
