Server starts fine from the command line if logged in from the
console. When logged in over ssh, starting from the command
line fails with the message "CFMessagePortCreateLocal failed".
The only entry in the system.log is: "Phaser ConsoleMessage:
Starting VNC Server".
OS X 10.2.8. Dual 867 MHz PowerPC G4, 512 MB RAM.
The command used to start the server is:
sudo /usr/local/bin/OSXvnc-server -rfbport 5900
What appears to be an identical setup on 2 400 MHz B&Ws, both
running 10.2.8, works fine. I can't figure out what the difference
Whether the firewall is on with port 5900 open or is completely
off makes no difference.
