    Re: HOWTO: Reverse VNC

    I read your post but it deals with ubuntu reverse connecting to windows, different than the problem with the work around I am talking about.

    I am using UltraVNC SC on windows machines to reverse vnc to my ubuntu 8.04 desktop. The bug with UltraVNC SC requires us to revert ubuntu back to the old v3.3.7 viewer. Unfortunately it appears that version is no longer in the repositories for 8.04.

    Does anyone have a new work around for 8.04?

    Re: HOWTO: Reverse VNC

    Well, got same problem...

    I have a small Ultravnc SC that my clients tranfer the control of their machines (XP) to mine at home.

    If I boot XP on my PC, no problem to gain control of their machines.

    But If I boot Kubuntu 8.04 LTS xvnc4viewer doesnt open viewer window, they have to open a server instance of ultravncserver and add a client...

    Just let us know if a workaround, or solution is available...

    Does this not work (post #66 by dazwin)?

    rmconard in post #100 has posted that it works for him (I haven't upgraded to Hardy yet, so I can't confirm).

    Re: HOWTO: Reverse VNC

    I found a solution at forum.ultravnc.info.

    Code:
    apt-get install xtightvncviewer
    
    xtightvncviewer -encodings "hextile copyrect" -listen
    It works for me.

    Re: HOWTO: Reverse VNC

    hi dbott
    I have an important question to looking forward a good solution.I think u've done it.I have two ubuntu systems.One system connected through static ip address and another system is connected through dynamic IP.I have to view my remote system through VNC viewer.through dyndns.org we can connect.But im not much clear about this.i used www.dnsexit.com.I registered my system so i got on domain name like clbtinhoc.net.later i removed this dns.i did this on static IP system.i cannot able to connect my remote dynamic IP system.if i get domain name for static IP system how do i connect my remote dynamic IP system?should i make any configuration in dynamic IP system?How do i add my dynamic remote host system in static IP system.please explain briefly.Im in very confusing.

    Regards,
    ASHOK

    Talking Re: HOWTO: Reverse VNC

    There is a cross-platform almost one click reverse VNC solution that even grandma can install (hopefully). Its called gitzo. Not much in the way of documentation but it seems straighforward.
    I havn't used it myself as I'm already set up, but theres an audio review of it in Episode 16 (you'll have to fast forward to the section where they discuss remote support.

    Hope this helps, it requires very little work at the PC at the remote end, and just setting up the firewall hole at the local end.

    all that it shows is...
    xtightvncviewer -encodings "hextile copyrect" -listen
    user117@ubuntu-117:~$ xtightvncviewer -encodings "hextile copyrect" -listen
    xtightvncviewer -listen: Listening on port 5500
    xtightvncviewer -listen: Command line errors are not reported until a connection comes in.
    ... what do i do know
