View and Control remote desktop over Internet or LAN
@ Why? Scenario?
===I got a desktop pc at home running Ubuntu Hardy, which has access to Broadband - USES STATIC IP!
===I got another pc at office running Fedora sulphur - again with broadband access - USES DHCP - NO STATIC IP!
===Simply want to control my home pc from Office.
@ What did I do?
%%%On Home PC....ubuntu hardy%%%
===run $ vino-preferences
===allowed other computers to access my Home PC
===set a password
===checked "encrypt connection"
===set port no to 5900 - default
===fired-up vncserver $ vncserver
===it said I had to install vnc4server / xvnc4viewer / x11vnc / vino
===so installed all those packages, without any problem.. just like it said... via synaptic
===run $ vncserver
===gave a password & verified it
===checked if vnc is running.. so run $ pgrep vnc
===throwed 2 PID's - so finally vncserver is up & running
%%%On Office PC...fedora sulphur%%%
===Ran $ vncviewer
===entered host IP (static home PC ip)
===it says "Unable connect to socket: connection refused (111)"
@ what might be the problem?
===tcp wrappers?? or missing some services??
===Since it said "111" - I started both NFS & Portmap service in fedora... (111 is portmap service port number).. should I do it in Ubuntu? & how?
===BTW.. how do I find open ports in Ubuntu... the $ nmap localhost doesn't exist...
