I had successfully connected remotely to my home Mac using SSH, then using ChickenOfThe VNC to make the GUI connection. I was able to do this 3-4 times. Then I started having problems with the VNC portion out of nowhere.
I began checking the OSXVNC server settings at home. It said it wasn’t running, but when I clicked the Start button, it said it was already running on 5901. That didn’t seem right, so I installed the newer Vine Server to see if it would make a difference, which it did not. However, a recent check shows that it claims to be running on 5901.
I can use Terminal to SSH and can make the connection. However, it reports:
bind: Address already in use
channel_setup_fwd_listener: cannot listen to port: 5901
Could not request local forwarding.
It lets me move around with command line, but VNC will not make the connection.
I’m at a loss. I have not changed anything on my router from when it was working before. I have a static IP on the Mac and a DynDNS address. I’m running Mac OS 10.4.9. The client that I’m testing from is also Mac 10.4.9. CotVNC is version 2.0b2.
I don’t know where to begin, so any help is appreciated. Thanks.
