I'm trying to remote desktop from my OS X 10.6.8 Mac to an Ubuntu 11.04 box.
When I go to Finder > Go > Connect To Server, type in "VNC://devmta1.local" and hit return, the Mac displays "Contacting mtadev1.local..." with the non-progress progress bar (what is that called, anyway?).
On the Ubuntu side, I get a notice that "hanuman.local" is controlling my computer, then that goes and away, and then... nothing. The "Contacting..." dialog box stays up on the Mac, but nothing else happens.
I've also tried with the IP address (but that doesn't make any difference).
Known issues? Suggestions?
