    Trying to log into :0 from VNC Java (browser)(SORTED!)


    You know how when you log into a Windows VNC server from another VNC client, you get the Windows desktop just as it would be if you were sitting in front of it? I'm trying to do the same logging into a VNC server on a Linux box instead of logging into :1. I'm using Firefox to login to VNC Java.

    I can log in without problems into :1, but when I try it with :0, it asks for the password, and when I type it in and press enter, I get...

    Code:
    rfb.AuthFailureException: Authentication failure
    I seem to be coming up empty on how to get this to work. Does anyone have any suggestions or solutions? Thanks.

    Just a follow up...

    I did what the linked page above said to do and it's working great! This is very handy for when I get a call that something, "isn't working right!" on a remote Linux machine. I can now log in to the machine and see exactly what they are seeing as the problem, then fix it. The added advantage is, THEY can watch you "fix" it and learn how to deal with the situation should it re-occur!
