hi xjqian,
i was finely able to get the opie-keypebble to work with my "Real VNC4." i have the "Real VNC" on an "XP" box (not my favorite OS) and I can see it on my z6kl. The issue seems to have been a password issue. I did not want to use one while I was running the tests, but the "Real VNC" seems to want one.
now I am trying to get the XP box to display the z6kl...

cheers,
lek

I am trying to run vnc with the vnc server running on another Linux box and the connection must be made thru a ssh tunnel.

I started the vncserver on my-server on port 5910. Then, on the Z6K I opened the tunnel with: ssh -L 5901:localhost:5910 my-user@my-server, it enters into a shell session on my-server.

Finally, I started the vncviewer on the Z6K and connected to localhost display 1 issuing the password previously set with vncpasswd on my-server into the my-user account.

I am not getting any error message on the client side, but nothing else happen then a blank background.

On the server side, the log file fo vnc doesn't return any errors either and end saying client 127.0.0.1 is gone.

What am I doing wrong?
xjqian
Thanks lek for all your suggestions. I set up the password but still no go for me. I think the problem must be the result of my shallow network knowledge. I promised myself dedicating a weekend to tackle it down. But not before 2/8. I'll describe my problem later from a clean slate.

Hi Xjqian,
if you have not yet ironed out your DNS issues, perhaps you should just use IP addresses, and worry about using "names" later.

OK, I managed to make VNC working thru a ssh tunnel. However, I need to use 8-bits depth, seems higher values don't work properly. I can start my VNC server with any depth, but the client must be set to request 8-bits depth to work properly.

Anyone is having this problem as well and managed to solve it?
xjqian
server side: laptop XP home, 1280x1024 res 32bit color, firewall off (if that matters), RealVNC 4.1 service mode (192.168.129.1). Default setting with password

client: opie-keypebble 1.0.0 Default setting (default set: request 8-bit session, scale factor 1) with password

Click "OK". at the bottom of my Z screen, says "Connected" but nothing happened afterwards. I've never used VNC on Z before, so what should I expect? Is this normal? Any hidden buttons I should click?

Hi xjqian, have you had any luck?
Sorry about the slow responce, but the local telecomm here in Addis, has been "upgrading" their system... I have been without Internet acess for a while...

With the server, I recall having to tell it to accept the remote connection.
the settings on my z6kl are as follows:
Data Encoding section.
Check for Screen updates every: 50 Milliseconds.
[checked] Request 8-bit session.
[checked] Raise on bell.
[unchecked] Request shared session.

Connection section.
I have nothing checked.

Connect to VNC Server.
Hostname: [using an ip rather then resolving a name]
Display Number: 0
Password: xxxxx

let me know how it goes.

Hey xjqian,
did you try connecting the Zaurus to the XP box using the wireless in Add-Hoc mode. This way you are connecting them directly together, rather then going through a router of some sort. You may be suffering from some type of signal issue.

Thanks for the patience. I find the problem by issuing "keypebble" in the command line, I got

Connected, logging in...
Waiting for server version ... [and hangs]

Seems the vnc server (RealVNC 4.1.1) in my XP box having problem.

I installed TightVNC instead. And it works like charm. smile.gif rolleyes.gif

It should be some configuration problem. You'd better put your Z's ip address into RealVNC server's accessible list. I can connect to my XP machine running RealVNC and tightVNC without any problem. You can first did a quick check for your serve configuration by enabling your loop test.

Sounds like the problem I may have just fixed (see this thread). If you have a Sharp style ROM you could try this ipk.

This sounds like the same problem, too. Please feel free to try my ipk and, if you do, I'd like to know how you get on.

This is an appeal to 6000 users to try out TimW's VNC(teakettle).

I've tried it, and am getting an error when trying to connect.

The details and ipk are in the Software section.

Thanks in advance!

I said I'd attach the plain exe in case it was an installation error but the forum software won't let me. I gzipped it and then it let me attach the gzipped version.

So if you can get it onto you zaurus and unzip it, then it mught be worth a try.

Still getting the same error. I was planning on setting up a compiling environment on my system anyway, could you put up the source somewhere (or email me?) and I can try compiling it.
TimW
Here is the source.

It is a little different to the 0.5 ipk as I've added the option to rotate to 0,90,180,270 degrees since that release.

I'm experimenting with drawing the tiles the correct size to start with so that there is no resizing of bitmaps to do. I haven't finished that but I think I've taken all of it back out and got it to a reaonably stable state.

I use the .pro file to build for qvfb on my laptop, .zpro for Sharp ROMs and .opro for opie builds. They each produce a Makefile, ZMakefile and OMakefile resp. The opie stuff is a bit ad hoc since I've broken my opie build environment (actually it got out of date and I'm on dial-up so I haven't been able to get it properly up to date).

Let me know if you need any help to get it to build (timwentford AT hotmail DOT com).

One thing has occured to me which could be part of the trouble. I cheat with zlib and just use the version embedded in liibqte rather than an external one (you need to copy (IIRC) zconf.h and zutil.h to the zaurus includes directory). This doesn't work on opie because zlib isn't embedded into qte for opie builds - maybe something like that happens on the 6000? If opie-reader works on the SL6000 it is unlikely though, since I do the same trick there.
TimW
I think I've found the problem. You *must* give the server a bookmark name. This is the bottom-most box on the "Server" tab.

I'll put a fix in that allows "anonymous" connections in the next release but in the meantime, just give the bookmark a name.
TimW
I've posted a new ipk on the other thread. I'm assuming that this isn't an SL6000 specific problem any more so I'll concentrate on the other thread again unless you tell me otherwise 8^).
undrwater
You are correct... biggrin.gif

But now I have no burning issue for which to set up the compiliing environment.

Thanks bunches for your work.
