VNC keymap problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2004
I'm having a weird problem on just one of my Linux-computers (there are 6, 3 x Debian, 3 x Mandrake). The computer is running Mandrake 10 and TightVNC's latest version (also tried many older versions). This problem just occurred one day and has remained since that. I have tried deleting all VNC's settings, reinstalling it many times and rebooted the computer many times.
The problem is with VNC keymapping. Eg. when I enter "9", VNC enters "e" on the server side. When I enter "+", it enters "/". When I enter space, it enters "1". What the heck is this?? And this only happens on this one computer.
It's driving me nuts, because I need VNC control to this computer. I even considered reinstalling Linux on it, at least I'd get rid of the problem by that (since it wasn't there on the beginning, just suddenly appeared without doing anything special, like updating VNC). What can cause this?
Good old VNC connection problem.

Please do not blame on me for bringing that question here but after days of searching in Internet for the answer I gave up and desided to ask the question myself.
I have VNC running on Redhat 9.0. When I try to connect with VNC client in my internal network (addresses 192.xxx...) I can connect with no problems. But if I try to connect from the external world or even in internal network by giving external IP my connection fails with an error Connection refused (10061).
My internal network stays behind a hardware firewall/router so the most obvious thing to look after would be the router settings. On the router connected to CableModem I opened the ports 5900, 5901, 5800, 5801, 21, 22 and forwarded them to the same port numbers of the internal IP of my Redhat. On the Redhat (RH) box I disabled the firewall at all.
From outside I can connect to Telnet(21) or SSH(22) but for some reason it fails to connect to VNC. From the client I tried to specify "24.xxx.xxx.xxx:5900", &quo
SSH VNC Weird problem..
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 24, 2011
not sure whats going on here but i re installed ubuntu 11.04 two days ago, to join 2 partitons into 1,
anyway i then setup vnc and ssh as normal but now it just times out on both when trying to connect is there a firewall or something in place by default?
ports show as open when scanning my external isp address, ubuntu box is in the dmz so no need for ports being forwarded..
am i missing something?
i also cannot connect via localhost, the above testing i could not connect from my work
i can also netcat to my external ip via ssh/vnc ports and read the banners fine?
VNC Keyboard problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 20, 2009

when i hit q it writes c
when i hit w it writes .
when i hit e it writes g
when i hit r it writes v
when i hit t it writes n
I was on IRC earlier today where someone was mentioning it as being a DVORAK vs QWERTY problem. I'm not sure how or where to change this, or even if it's the problem. I tried to change the keyboard layouts in system -> preferences -> keyboard on both the client and the server. that didn't have any effect.
I also tried what was written in this post: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1202231
that didn't seem to work for me either.
i've been struggeling with this for a few days now and would very much appreciate any point in the right direction.
thanks a million
VNC Keyboard Problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 3, 2006
I'm having issues with VNC!! I use it to connect from my XP box to my Suse10 Server. The connection works fine (can see the server's screen) & the Server's keyboard works fine from the server itself. However, for some reason the keyboard doesn't work through VNC.
I think this might have happened after I changed my keyboard layout through SaX2 from US to UK. Everything seemed to screw up!!
Xorg.0.log comaplains about a missing keymap -- server-0.xkm and sax won't change my keyboard mappings any more -- they are stuck on Albaina!!
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

VNC access problem please advise
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 5, 2013
I just got account on a university cluster. The head node is CentOS58. I can access my account over SSH without problems. I also can access my Gnome desktop on the cluster over VNC, but only from home SciLInux58 box. From my office, however, I can only access my account over SSH to get basic CLI, either from RHEL58 box or from Mac terminal. Attempts to get Gnome desktop using the same procedure as from home fail with timeout error, no matter what platforms I use - RHEL58 (VNCViewer), Mac (bulit-in VNC), or Windows (PuTTY + VNCViewer). I guess it has something to do with the corporate network in my organization. Windows and Mac receive their addresses from DHCP, but RHEL58 box has a static internal address.
Unfortunately, cluster administration is not of much help as I am outsider, neither is our IT as they have no Linux expertise. I guess If I tell them what needs to be done admninistratively they could help. Please advise what steps I can take to get this resolved.

VNC keyboard problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 25, 2008
I am using vnc to connect to Ubuntu 7.1 from windows xp.
It was working fine but something I have done must have broken some settings and the keyboard is jumbled up (types the wrong characters).
A terminal connection through putty is fine.
Connecting directly onto the Ubuntu box is also fine except that I do get a message saying X settings are different from Gnome settings every time I log in.
My logfile in ~.vnc is:
