Hello

I have access to vnc servers thru the web browser: there are vnc files on specific web page, example file:

Code:

[connection]
host=ucs01-bl2.company.com
port=6328


On windows such a file is automatically open by any typical vnc viewer (like Tight VNC viewer).
On my gentoo i have installed vncviewer but it does not work.

When i try to:
#vncviewer mycompany.vnc
window appears with the error "getaddrinfo: Name or Service not known"
This is some kind of bug, because hostname resolution is working fine. Maybe this vncviewer can not read this file format ?

Anyway - i am looking for any solution ? Do you know any vnc viewer which reads such a files ?

Thanx
Michal

Given your example, try this:

Code:

vncviewer ucs01-bl2.company.com:6328


Let us know if that worked.

it does not work, i have just black screen. TCP session is established.
I can connect using telnet.
I guess vncviewer is not compatible with my vnc server ?(but under windows openvnc can access without problem)

When you telnet to that port, what do you get back? It should be the RFB version string. You can then check your windows / openvnc version to make sure it's compatible.

when i telnet i receive string:
Code:

RFB 003.008


On windows it works with TightVNC Viewer 2.5.1.

On gentoo i've tried
tightvnc 1.3.10-r1
tigervnc 1.1.0-r7
For both results were the same: black window appear with warning that authentication will be in plain text.

EDIT
I found the solution, i need vncviewer that supports ecnryption: ssvncviewer
