Connecting to Linux VNC Server through UVNC repeater

Postby JohnG1223 » 2015-03-11 19:59

Hello,

I have been trying to get UVNC connected to x11vnc through the UVNC repeater, but have not been successful. So far I have been able to directly connect UltraVNC to the Linux x11vnc VNC server on Ubuntu. The direct connection works with and without SSL encryption.

Since that works I have been trying to setup the x11vnc VNC server to connect with the UVNC. I have tried using the following options for x11vnc:

Code: Select all
-connect repeater=ID:9999+repeaterServerSideAddress:443
-connect repeater://repeaterServerSideAddress:443+ID:9999
-proxy repeaterServerSideAddress:443


I have reviewed the logs output by UVNC repeater and it seems that the x11vnc server is connecting with it (says it saves the server with the ID 9999)

I have been trying to connect with UVNC VNCViewer, TightVNC, and TigerVNC through the UVNC repeater. I have also tried creating the connection with SSVNC and launching each of those different VNC clients. No luck.

I have not been able to get any client connected through the repeater. I have not tried doing an SSL connection through the repeater because I cannot get the non-encrypted connection through the repeater to work.

Has anyone had any luck connecting to a Linux VNC server through the UVNC repeater? If so which server worked? How was the connection specified?

Does it matter which client I use to connect through the UVNC repeater? Does only UVNC client work through the repeater?

Any suggestions on different things to try?

I have since been able to connect through the UVNC repeater with a Windows client using SSVNC to x11vnc server on Ubuntu. When launching x11vnc server I used this command to connect to the repeater:

-connect repeater=ID:9999+repeaterServerSideAddress:443

and in the SSVNC proxy/gateway field:

repeater://repeaterServerSideAddress:443+ID:9999

Not able to connect through the repeater using SSL though, still working on that.

I have now got the Windows VNC client connected through the UVNC repeater to the x11vnc VNC server on Ubuntu with an SSL connection.
In the SSVNC help it describes how to configure both x11vnc and SSVNC options for this type of connection. In SSVNC, Options>Advanced> Check off 'Do not probe for VeNCrypt'. Launching x11vnc use options: -ssl -connect_or_exit repeater://myuvncrep.west+ID:2345 -env X11VNC_DISABLE_SSL_CLIENT_MODE=1 -loop300,2 -sslonly
