[SOLVED] VNC not working
I recently turned an old windows machine into a LAMP box using Ubuntu Server 8.04.
Both computers are on the same local LAN and I can access the webpage on the server just fine from my main computer.
Problem is I don't have a monitor to dedicate to this server all the time so I was hoping to get VNC up and running so I could remotely connect to it. So I installed ubuntu-desktop on my server so I'd have an X environment.
Problem is, I've installed tightvncserver (apt-get install tightvncserver) and I've installed the viewer on my Windows XP box and I cannot connect to the Linux box. Started the vnc server (vncserver) and set a password.
I've tried via hostname, IP address, nothing. I even tried installing RealVNC viewer on my XP box to see if it was maybe a glitch with the software, but no go.
What am I doing wrong?
