When I'm trying to connect to x11vnc server started on Ubuntu 16.10


The "Screen Sharing" app on on OS X 10.11.6 just hangs.

enter image description here

How can I fix this?

  • When debugging this, if there is any problem with creating the connection, note that the Screen Sharing app (in macOS 10.13.4) will leave an open connection and not try again. You need to quit the app before trying again. – James May 26 '18 at 13:07

If you want to connect to x11vnc server using "Screen Sharing" app on OS X, you need to tweak the x11vnc starting command:

x11vnc -display :0 -noxrecord -noxfixes -noxdamage -forever -passwd 123456
  • You can't use -ncache
  • You have to use -passwd
