How to fix connectivity issue between Windows 10 host and Ubuntu server

CoolHandLuke

Greetings-

I am trying to connect to an Ubuntu 14.04 server from my Windows 10 machine. I followed the instructions posted at http://www.havetheknowhow.com/Configure-the-server/Install-VNC.html when I started vncserver for the first time, I got the following error message: “xauth:  file /root/.Xauthority does not exist”

I proceeded with the instructions as I did not know if it is going cause an issue. I was not able to connect, and checked the logs of the firewall on my host which is a McAfee product, and did not see the IP address of the Ubuntu server being blocked.

Here is what is in the ./vnc/ logs file:

·       Sat Apr  9 22:01:03 2016

·       vncext:      VNC extension running!

·       vncext:      Listening for VNC connections on port 5901

·        

** (process:20211): WARNING **: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown:

 

I think I read somewhere that I need to configure a user account for VNC? Is that true? I mean on the Ubuntu machine. Is my issue related to the fact that I just have root account right now?
