After a bit of searching I found this in an error log somewhere. I appreciate the vagueness of this but how do I configure the ip vino should be listening on?
also I cannot find the location of the vino binary either.
It's not in
/usr/bin/ where the client vinagre is.
edit: once a session is created locally on the machine in question vino does start listening on 5900, which i guess is the whole point of remote desktop as opposed to remote x window tunnelling (ie you want someone to log in remotely to an existing session). But I still cannot create a remote desktop session using vino from a remote client (I use remmina on the client machine) over the lan.
Client-wise Remmina just reports
[VNC]ConnectClientToTcpAddr6: connect [VNC]ConnectToTcpAddr: connect [VNC]Unable to connect to VNC server
and I can create a remote x window ssh tunnel so there is no problem connecting to the box.
