System Server is terminated after Login Window

Hi, I must have misconfigured something, maybe you have a hint for me where to look in the configuration.

My problem is this:
I boot my machine, Vine System Server is listening on port 5901. I connect to my machine with SSH and then connect to the machine with UltraVNC from a windows client.
This part is working, I get the common mac user login screen.
I enter my username and password, and after hitting the enter key, UltraVNC quits and I am no longer able to reconnect with UltraVNC.

The VineServer log states, the moment I do the login in the Login Window, VineServer is terminated and restarted, trying to again use port 5901 which is already in use.

The solution for the moment is, to explicitely kill all VineServer processes manually with the kill command, VineServer then automatically restarts an I again can connect with UltraVNC.

I appreciate any hint you have...

Attachched you find the log messages:

    So most of that behavior is as expected. The trick is that when a user logs in _another_ Vine Server should be started (under the user's login session) that is on port 5901 that you should be able to connect to. Can you verify if the other VNC (owned by the newly logged in user) is running and what it's status is?
  • Thank you for your quick answer.

    Would you be so kind telling me how to determine the status of the _other_ Vine Server?

    The above snippet of the log is everything I get. If I try to connect to my machine with UltraVNC I get the following error: see attached image

    The strange Thing is, that I still can telnet to port 5901...[/img]

    That protocol message usually indicates you are connecting to ARD but that only ever runs on port 5900. What do you get when you telnet to port 5901?
    For Vine Server It should be:
    RFB 003.008

    That seems really strange then that you can't get logged in with UltraVNC because clearly the server is up and connecting. I wonder if it's having a problem reading the password file. Can you look at the processes that are running which should include the path to the password file and then make sure that file is READABLE by the user you are login in as?
  • btw: I just tried using UltraVNC 1.0.5 on Windows XP, now UltraVNC just quits without any message...
  • can you give me a hint, where to look for the password files?
  • would anybody be so kind giving me a hint on this?
