Hello. I tried using this tutorial: to make a vnc server on my dropler. I did like in the tutorial, everything worked. vncserver has started but now I have a problem.
I put it on default: sudo update-rc.d vncserver defaults but even after reboot I still get the console on console access, but this isn’t my main problem.
When I try to connect to my dropler with remote desktop (integrated in windows 7) I got an error (Remote desktop can’t connect to the remote computer for one of the reasons:
remote acces to the server is not enabled
the remote computer is turned off
the remote computer is not avaible on the network

Also, when I try to connect with Putty, I got an error (connection refused).
Can someone help me with it? I just don’t get how to make this work.

Try using a client like Tight VNC or Real VNC - your Remote Desktop will not be able to connect to a VNC server. But you will also want to ensure you can ping the port you are attempting to connect with, and ensure that you are able to get through any firewall or security you have set up.
