RE: VNC Connection aborts with no error message


i'm not sure as to what to suggest. in the meantime, you might try to post
the issue/question to the vnc mailing list if you haven't already. it's been
helpful to me in the past when i've had a few weird issues... you can find
the list information via www.vnc.(org/net/com).

When I run the vncviewer from the command line, it don't get much feedback
giving the reason why it terminated. This is all it says:

[username localhost .vnc]$ vncviewer
VNC viewer for X version 4.0b4 - built Apr 14 2004 12:25:22

 CConn:       connected to host port 5900
 CConnection: Server supports RFB protocol version 3.8
 CConnection: Using RFB protocol version 3.7
 TXImage:     Using default colormap and visual, TrueColor, depth 16.
 CConn:       Using pixel format depth 6 (8bpp) rgb222
 CConn:       Using ZRLE encoding
 main:        End of stream
I'm beggining to think that the problem isn't a vnc-specific configuration
problem (it must be some other suybsystem running on the server that's a
conflict for I retraced the steps I originally used to set it up... and I
already tried stopping iptables and SELinux... The re must be a lofile for
the actual VNC Server or GDM that can give  details as to whyth econnection
is quitting so abruptly.... doesn't say anything specific (or in detail
atleast) about these failing VNC connections about it in the daily
Logwatch's delivered to root either

I used the login screen configuration tool under the Gnome main menu to

somehow actually setup to reject it but it is not...

Run vncviewer from the command line -- what error message does it
