I use
Code:

[I] kde-base/krfb
     Available versions:  (4) 4.10.2 ~4.10.3
        {{aqua debug +handbook telepathy}}
     Installed versions:  4.10.2(4)(16:31:37 08.05.2013)(handbook telepathy -aqua -debug)
     Homepage:            http://www.kde.org/
     Description:         VNC-compatible server to share KDE desktops


and when I try to share my destop I got:
xxxx::xxxx:FF:FE26:C8A7%vnet0:5888

An ipv6 address. When I did an
Code:
lsof -n -i:5888
it shows nothing. I use kvm on my laptop and have running qemu's that use the standart vnc port 5900, so I change settings in krfb to use port 5888

I configure my network to use dhcp on br0 (I need it for kvm) and br0 got an ipv4 private address. Every other services run on ipv4, so I don't understand why krfb uses ipv6?

"ip addr" shows
Code:
5: br0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,PROMISC,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP
    link/ether xx:xx:xx:xx:43:30 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet 10.x.x.120/24 brd 10.x.x.255 scope global br0
    inet6 xxx::xxxx:aff:fe5b:4330/64 scope link
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

very strange

help welcome :)

I've had some weird issues with krfb. In the end, I gave up on it and use a regular VNC server instead. (I chose x11vnc)

On the machine I want to remotely control, I created a batch file which I set to "autostart" with KDE in the "sessions management" screen.

The batch file is:
#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/x11vnc -display WAIT:0 -shared -forever -allow 192.168.1. -bg
exit 0


To control this machine remotely, I just enter "vncviewer xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"


Since then, I've had no problem with remotely controlling the desktop.
