    Hi,

    I'm running cotvnc 2.0b4 and also compiled and tried on the CVS version; 2.0b2 on my PPC mac was able to connect without problems to a host; 2.0b4 on my Intel PowerbookPro seems to connect fine, except that the window never shows up at all. The application "seems" fine, but no window.

    When running under debug mode, the stdout gives the following clue:

    [Session started at 2006-05-30 18:09:30 -0700.]
    2006-05-30 18:09:40.573 Chicken of the VNC[29306] Server reports Version RFB 003.130

    Anybody any idea what could be going on ?

    Thanks in advance,

    - Filip

      I also have the same problem. So I opened up tcpdump on the receiving side (server) and captured these packets.

      17:01:14.773750 IP 10.0.1.134.53387 > 10.0.1.127.5901: S 3325899346:3325899346(0) win 65535 <mss 1460,nop,wscale 0,nop,nop,timestamp 1073758221 0>
      17:01:14.773797 IP 10.0.1.127.5901 > 10.0.1.134.53387: R 0:0(0) ack 3325899347 win 0
      17:01:15.866177 IP 10.0.1.134.53388 > 10.0.1.127.5901: S 119504268:119504268(0) win 65535 <mss 1460,nop,wscale 0,nop,nop,timestamp 1073758223 0>
      17:01:15.866228 IP 10.0.1.127.5901 > 10.0.1.134.53388: R 0:0(0) ack 119504269 win 0

      local (client) is 10.0.1.134, remote (server) is 10.0.1.127

      Apparently there are packets being sent, but nothing happens. Also, I am able to telnet into the server with the following information.

      telnet 10.0.1.127 5801
      Trying 10.0.1.127...
      Connected to 10.0.1.127.
      Escape character is '^]'.
      ?
      HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request

      Heh, I didn't state it but from the looks of it, the port dosen't seem to have effect when I type out, "10.0.1.127:5801" it appears to try and connect to 5901. Although, I could be wrong about this.
