    VNC Server


    Well this is kinda a tricky problem.
    I have a PC in a NAT that needs to get VNC Traffic at port 5911 instead of 5901 or 5900.
    So I launched a vncserver (realVNC) in this box. (That i can only connect using SSH so I cant use X11, yet)
    so I start with vncserver :11 -name MyX11Way
    But that doesnt shuff him on port 59<11>
    does anyone know how to get him there?
    Thanks,
    Cheers,
    Robin

    Are you trying to contact this vnc server from outside the lan? If so, have you forwarded port 5911 to the server machine for incoming traffic? Have you checked to make sure 5911 is clear on the server itself and not blocked by a firewall?

    Is the client machine using standard terminal to get into the server? It's not by chance trying to get in through a web browser? What is the command that the client machine is using to try to connect to the server?

    when I launch the VNC Server it connects Toms Window Mananger with it.
    But I found out what the problem was.
    a Defect Network Cable.
    It did work.. But not completly.
    I really work in a Cheap Company -.-'
    But it works now.
    The network Cable was just really instable.

    Thanks anyhow -.-'
