TightVNC + IPTables + Local Network
I recently set up a Debian Etch machine in my local network, and today I wanted to set up a VNC connection so I can log into its X from my Windows gaming box, as the Linux box runs w/o monitor.
I installed tightvncserver and started it with some parameters (geometry/depth so far only), and it loaded it to :1.
For my Windows box I installed the TightVNC software and started the viewer, however everytime I attempt to connect, it fails.
Using google to find a solution it seems it could be that IPTables is interfering with the ports (or rather actually doing its job by blocking them).
A small guide somewhere to disable IPTables (as it's only in my local network anyway, and not even set up as router etc...) however didn't give the results I hoped to get, and I still cannot connect to the linux box via tightvnc.
are there any further possibilities on how to solve this problem?
