connecting to my Ubuntu Antlet with Tight VNC

12

I installed tight VNC and when I try to connect to my antsle it does not act like I can.

I added a LAN connector to my local network direct

I am using ip addressing so it is not a DNS issue.

I followed these instructions here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-vnc-on-ubuntu-16-04

I am on the second step in Step 3.    Connecting with Tight VNC client.

When I use the NoVNC on my surface pro I do not get a mouse pointer so I was just trying to resolve that issue by using another VNC viewer.

Any thoughts?

On another laptop I am having the same issue with noVNC not showing the mouse.

 

Hi ac9hp,

Have you tried to connect directly to the VNC service that virsh provides out of the box?

You can find the VNC port by SSHing into your antsle and executing:

virsh vncdisplay ANTLET_NAME

That'll return something like: 127.0.0.1:0

You can connect to display 0 in the Tight VNC client.

If it asks for port, you can find the port by adding 5900 to the display number. In this example, for cero (0) is: 5900 + 0 = 5900.

If the output would have been something like 127.0.0.1:4, then port would be 5904 (5900 + 4).

Let us know how it goes!

I seem to have an issue with my hostname?

 

[email protected]:/etc # virsh vncdisplay antlet15
error: failed to get domain 'antlet15'
error: Domain not found: no domain with matching name 'antlet15'

[email protected]:/etc # virsh vncdisplay antlet15.bblv
error: failed to get domain 'antlet15.bblv'
error: Domain not found: no domain with matching name 'antlet15.bblv'

[email protected]:/etc # virsh vncdisplay antlet15.local
error: failed to get domain 'antlet15.local'
error: Domain not found: no domain with matching name 'antlet15.local'

[email protected]:/etc # virsh vncdisplay ubuntu16
error: failed to get domain 'ubuntu16'
error: Domain not found: no domain with matching name 'ubuntu16'

[email protected]:/etc # virsh vncdisplay ubuntu16.bblv
error: failed to get domain 'ubuntu16.bblv'
error: Domain not found: no domain with matching name 'ubuntu16.bblv'

[email protected]:/etc #

This is even more odd...

As it can resolve the hostname.

Guess I should read up on using virsh and see how I can list what it knows these antlets as..

Here we go:

9     Win10                          running
10    AppleIIEmulator                running

[email protected]:~ # virsh vncdisplay AppleIIEmulator
127.0.0.1:0

[email protected]:~ #

So my antlse is 172.24.1.131 and if I use tight VNC I get a message that my antsle is activing refusing the connection.

If I VNC to the machine ip of 172.24.1.193 it times out.

Maybe I am fighting a firewall issue not related..

 

 

Hi ac9hp,

You need to use the *antlet name*, not the hostname. Looking at your output, I see your antlet names are "Freebsd", "Win10" & "AppleIIEmulator". Based on the names, my guess is that ubuntu is "AppleIIEmulator" (not ubuntu16), so you should execute:

virsh vncdisplay AppleIIEmulator

That should give you the display number to use in the VNC client.

Never was able to connect to an antlet using VNC...

Not really sure what is blocking it.

 

I can concur that the instructions given do not help connect to the antlet.

IP of Antsle: 192.168.1.20

Getting output from virsh vncdisplay ubuntu returns

127.0.0.1:1

Using RoyalTS Tightvnc, host: 192.168.1.20:5901

Connection is refused, zero networking rules are in place to prohibit the internal connection.

Using VNCViewer, connection refused.
