I have a Ubuntu Droplet I'm in the process of setting up. I'd like to have the console setup and accessible, in case any network issues arise. However, when I attempt to access the console from your interface it returns:

"Server disconnected (code: 1006)"

Is there any software that needs to be installed on the VM (like NoVNC), or ports that need to be opened on it's firewall to allow this? What's the standard process for having this be accessible to a new Linux VM?

Thanks! :)

The console does not require any additional software but will use a random port to connect the HTML client with the vnc service. Since multiple services are run per-hypervisor the port used is a random one usually in the 6000-7000 range.

Okay, thanks - it's still rejecting the request when I attempt to connect - with the above mentioned error.

  • I have the same issue while on holiday, the problem is the wifi here has blocked every port except for port 80 (for web browsing) so I can't acces my machine from here :(, I'm guessing your problem is the same.

Same problem also. I cannot open console from office due to this as office only allows port 80 and 443, this is disadvantage for me
