VNC

Holley, Atemia


When I attempt to vnc to some of my computers.  It remotes onto another computer on the network.  The standard way we remote into a device is by the computer name and sometimes by ip address.  This issue normally happens when I go to remote by computer name.  Can anyone help me resolve this?

All settings go to the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TightVNC\Server).

So you can setup a box, export the registry and import elsewhere.

I am trying to VNC to a Linux VM that has been set up for VNC. I can ssh
into the command line interface of this VM with no problem. I can VNC to
the same VM but the first thing I see is a colorfully tiled window with a
date and time. I cannot figure out what combination of keys bring me past
this tiled window. Has anyone seen this before?

It would help if you uploaded a screenshot somewhere and link it here.

But I think your VM is set up that way it creates a new X session for
any VNC client connecting, and displays that new X session via VNC. In
that case, what you see is the X login screen of the Linux inside the VM.

Kind regards

Sounds like the screen saver blind. You move the mouse to the bottom
center of screen, click and hold, then drag the blind up to show what was
behind the blind.

They put that in a couple versions ago, and it took some time to figure it out.
Don't know how VNC would show it, but on the real screen it shows a little
arrow going up in the bottom center to kind of give you the ideal.

This sounds like a new Gnome3 desktop you're trying to log into.  As
such, hit the space bar to get to a login prompt.  Btw, I think this is
hugely intuitive as it doesn't say what to do at all!

Re: VNC

Patrick Shoaf

I have the same problem.  This is usually a DNS problem.  This occurs when a new IP address is issued via DHCP and the DNS has not received and/or published the new IP address to the environment, or there are 2 IP addresses for the same name in the DNS server.

This explanation makes sense. I don't know what to do about this since I have no priviledges on this vm

All settings go to the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TightVNC\Server).

So you can setup a box, export the registry and import elsewhere.

I am trying to VNC to a Linux VM that has been set up for VNC. I can ssh
into the command line interface of this VM with no problem. I can VNC to
the same VM but the first thing I see is a colorfully tiled window with a
date and time. I cannot figure out what combination of keys bring me past
this tiled window. Has anyone seen this before?

It would help if you uploaded a screenshot somewhere and link it here.

But I think your VM is set up that way it creates a new X session for
any VNC client connecting, and displays that new X session via VNC. In
that case, what you see is the X login screen of the Linux inside the VM.

Kind regards

Sounds like the screen saver blind. You move the mouse to the bottom
center of screen, click and hold, then drag the blind up to show what was
behind the blind.

They put that in a couple versions ago, and it took some time to figure it out.
Don't know how VNC would show it, but on the real screen it shows a little
arrow going up in the bottom center to kind of give you the ideal.

This sounds like a new Gnome3 desktop you're trying to log into.  As
such, hit the space bar to get to a login prompt.  Btw, I think this is
hugely intuitive as it doesn't say what to do at all!

Re: VNC

B. S.
It's not an issue with your vm, it's an issue with your vm being
informed in a timely manner, which will be cross-network / universe, not
specific to your vm. It's your local net's servers. Or your server's
servers. DHCP isn't being propagated fast enough through your net.

You need to talk to your admins, especially if you can have this happen
to you then get them on the phone fast enough to see it.

One way you might be able to tell, I forget ...

ping -a <your client's computer name>
ping <the number that comes back>

If the names and IPs don't match in both, that workstation's IP change
hasn't yet percolated through to your local hosts' name resolution
'provider'. That's a net service related <thing>, so something your net
admins need to address - nothing to do with your vm.

The way I would have used to do this in this case is 'rcmd <computer>',
look at the user directories, and if the user I'm dealing with isn't
there, I'm on the wrong computer.

Or, if you can get your user to run ipconfig on their machine, and you
ping <computername> from yours, and the IPs don't match - you're
experiencing the issue. So, in the mean time, vnc by IP address, not
computer name.

Re: VNC

Steve Bostedor
In reply to this post by Holley, Atemia
Hi Holly,

  This really sounds like a name mismatch on your DNS server.  If the computers are DHCP configured and self register their DNS, it could be a DNS cache issue.  Bozteck VNCScan performs a continuous background scan for computers to attempt to combat these issues but if you are using VNC outside of the VNCScan console, you may need to do an ipconfig /flushdns to get things back into sync.

Thank you,

All settings go to the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TightVNC\Server).

So you can setup a box, export the registry and import elsewhere.

I am trying to VNC to a Linux VM that has been set up for VNC. I can ssh
into the command line interface of this VM with no problem. I can VNC to
the same VM but the first thing I see is a colorfully tiled window with a
date and time. I cannot figure out what combination of keys bring me past
this tiled window. Has anyone seen this before?

It would help if you uploaded a screenshot somewhere and link it here.

But I think your VM is set up that way it creates a new X session for
any VNC client connecting, and displays that new X session via VNC. In
that case, what you see is the X login screen of the Linux inside the VM.

Kind regards

Sounds like the screen saver blind. You move the mouse to the bottom
center of screen, click and hold, then drag the blind up to show what was
behind the blind.

They put that in a couple versions ago, and it took some time to figure it out.
Don't know how VNC would show it, but on the real screen it shows a little
arrow going up in the bottom center to kind of give you the ideal.

This sounds like a new Gnome3 desktop you're trying to log into.  As
such, hit the space bar to get to a login prompt.  Btw, I think this is
hugely intuitive as it doesn't say what to do at all!
