how do you connect using tighVNC?

how do you connect using tighVNC? Followed the isntructions but when trying to connect using tightvnc from windows 10 the connection times out.

Tight VNC instructions are not given, just putty and ssh through cli. Please can you point me in direction to documentation that helps connect via tightVNC? i am connecting using <server_ip>:5901

Hi, @marriog

Have you tried using another client different from tightvnc? You can use RealVNC, VNC Viewer or Remmina as well.

If you’re still getting a blank page you can do the following. Add the following snippet to the xstartup which is mentioned in step 1 - /home/sammy/.vnc/xstartup and try again.

 dbus-launch xfce4-session

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
