VNC Server Problem (Bad Display Name - SOLVED)!


This issue occurs when attempting to start a VNC server session:

# vncserver :1 -geometry 1600x900 -depth 24

This is resolved by adding a FQDN (fully qualified domain name) to file /etc/hosts as follows:

# vi /etc/hosts

192.168.1.110   thinkpad                thinkpad.fios-router.home


Verification:

No more error messages. You are now also able to access this server from a remote PC via a VNC client
