    Post Web VNC Issue

    I am running a vmware image of backtrack as a part of a hacker lab, and am having trouble getting web vnc to function properly. Here's the facts:

    1. Connecting to it with a normal VNC client works fine.

    2. From a cold boot I cannot connect to the web vnc service (580x)

    3. If I stop / start the vnc process via the menus it works fine.

    Any thoughts on this? It's bt2 pretty much out of the box. Is there a fix or perhaps a misconfiguration? Is there a way to automate restarting the service after it loads? Thanks!

    Are you using the included remote display with vmware or a third party server?

    Did you check if the service is running and listening on 580x after yoru cold boot?

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Hmm, it looks like I may have been mistaken. I just did a coldboot and did a netstat -a and neither 580x or 590x were listening. So that means that the service is just not configured to boot on startup right? How would I change that?

    Also, I am using the built in VNC.
