This seems to load ok but removes the shell prompt. I presume the server has started and is listening on the ports so i used another putty window to reconnect to my machine and ran sockstat -l and xllvnc is listening on the 2 ports.
I then downloaded realvnc windows client and entered the hostname to connect
If i entered just the hostname or hostname:5900 i get a timeout error but if i enter hostname:5800 i get 'connection refused' error
I have been advised this is not the best way and i should start the server like so
I tried starting the server like this but i got a warning saying i was running the server without a password.
There does appear to be an encrypted password in ~/.vnc/passwd though so i tried this instead
There was some loading messages.
The root prompt returned so i assumed the server must be running in the background so i tried ps -ef | grep vnc to look for it but nothing was listed. How do i stop the vnc servers I have started???
I tried connecting via realvnc (with port 2000) but got connection refused. The linux machine uses a non-standard port for SSH so I don't know if realvnc is trying to connect via ssh over the standard port with forwarding to port 2000?
Note: please do not simply post a link to a website with instructions as your answer as I will not award the points. I have already looked at many websites and it seems I am unable to do this without some human guidance
