I have forwarded the port 5900 for TightVNC. I have TightVNC 2.0 Beta4 installed on my Windows Vista machine.
I then try to connect from an Arch Linux box:
[earlz@earlzarch ~]$ vncviewer somehost::5900 Connected to RFB server, using protocol version 3.8 Performing standard VNC authentication Password: Authentication successful vncviewer: VNC server closed connection [earlz@earlzarch ~]$ vncviewer --help TightVNC Viewer version 1.3.10
What is wrong here? I thought that TightVNC 2.0 fixed the Vista bug with VNC servers? Is there any additional configuration I needed?
Update I've tried from my LAN connecting with the TightVNC beta4 client and it yields an "IPv4 Error". I then tried uninstalling the TightVNC server and installing UltraVNC. When connecting to UltraVNC with TightVNC viewer, I get the same exact error. When connecting to UltraVNC with UltraVNC's own client I get "connection closed: server running as application".
I have absolutely no idea why I would have so much trouble getting a simple VNC server running. I am running 64bit Windows Vista, have no firewall installed(and Windows Firewall disabled)
