How to: Restart vnc server for geordi

Trying to open a vnc window with geordi geordi vnc ended up with this error:

Copy
> VNC viewer could not be opened: vncviewer: ConnectToTcpAddr: connect: Connection refused

Check if vncserver 17 (default geordi session) is running:

Copy
ps -aux|grep vnc

If you see Xvnc4 :17 then the server is already running. Kill this server if it is already running.

Copy
vncserver -kill :17

Also make sure to remove the lockfile of the VNC server you just murdered:

Copy
rm -f /tmp/.X17-lock

Geordi should start the server again when it needs it.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
