I’ve been trying to help someone connect to his Mac via VNC. He stores the password like this:
mymac% storepasswd secretpass /Users/username/vncpassword
Once storepasswd reports success and we confirm that /Users/username/vncpasswd exists and is readable by him, he starts the VNC server like this:
mymac% osxvnc-server -rfbauth /Users/username/vncpassword
… and it appears to listen just fine. He directs a VNC viewer to this running VNC server and types secretpass at the password prompt. The server complains “Could not access password file” and he’s not allowed in. Is this a known bug? Any ideas?
