Im having troubles while im trying to connect from linux to Windows CE, via VNC viewer. Here is what i can see on log:


VNC Viewer Free Edition 4.1.2 for X - built Apr 20 2011 12:04:25

 CConn:       connected to host port 5900
 CConnection: Server supports RFB protocol version 3.5
 CConnection: Using RFB protocol version 3.3
 TXImage:     Using default colormap and visual, TrueColor, depth 24.
 CConn:       Using pixel format depth 6 (8bpp) rgb222
 CConn:       Using ZRLE encoding

I cannot see anything - only black screen. Restarting device does not help. Device is connected directly to machine by crossed ethernet cable, and its IP is assigned by DHCP. Any clues, ideas, what can i do to get normal view ?

best regards J.
