View Full Version : [ubuntu] VNC connects but...

March 5th, 2010, 09:29 PM
I have just installed RealVNC server onto my windows machine and am attempting to test-connect via direct LAN to make sure it works. I plan to use this for remote access while I'm at away during the day.

Right now I cannot even connect over local LAN (direct into machine to bypass router config issues for now).

It seems from running xtightvnc in terminal that ubuntu uses an old version of VNC that is incompatible because I get:
Connected to RFB server, using protocol version 3.3
No configured security type is supported by 3.3 viewer

How do I update the vnc protocol on Ubuntu so it will authorize correctly?
