Subject Re: HOW do i create a connection?
Date Thu, 14 Jul 2016 18:40:59 GMT
So i thought 631 because that became open as soon as i install x11vnc

So what port then do i use for VNC?
My other questions, what user logs in through VNC and do i need to do
anything to sshd config?

Thanks for your help
