Fix VNC has been configured on this system by Cloudmin, but the VNC server on port 590…
This Cloudmin issue drove me nuts, but then it clicked on why it didn’t work.
If, for some reason, after you configure your network or your server magically, VNC stops working. The answer is as simple as your host’s file.
root@mvd01:~# cat /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 mvd01.takelan.com mvd01 # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters # If we consider 127.0.1.1 mvd01.takelan.com mvd01 as localhost MAKE SURE your HOSTNAME is THERE! root@mvd01:~# cat /etc/hostname mvd01.takelan.com
Your hostname MUST be declared in the Hosts file (as 127.0.0.x)…
After you’ve fixed that, try it again, and should be working just fine.
