I try to connect to my vncserver running on CentOs from home computer, behind firewall. I have installed Win7 and Ubuntu both on this machine. I have an error:
VNC conenction failed: vncserver too many security failures
even when logging with right credentials (I reset passwd on CentOs) I get: authentication failure.
I observe that I have to wait a whole day to be able to relogin at all.
Is it something regarding that I try as root? I think important is also that I have to login to remote Centos through port 6050 - none else port works for me. Do I have to do something with other ports? I see that vncserver is listening on 5901, 5902 if another added - and I consider connection is established because from time to time (long time) the passwd prompt appears,... right?
I have created additional user1, password for him to CentOS and to VNC, also user2. I do:
service vncserver start
and two servers starts, one :1, and second on :2. When I try to connect to vncserverIP:1 I get what described above, but when I try connect to vncserverIP:2 it says that the trial was unsuccessful.
please help, what to do?
additionally: how to disable this lockout for a testing purposes?
