[Solved] Can't connect with Simple VNC server (aml-vnc)

  • WOW


    i didn't know vnc worked for Kodi, this is fantastic, now i can update or test the lazy way. Any vnc app that has touch screen support? TightVNC does not seem to work with touch or could it been i have the cursor disabled in advancedsettings.xml?

  • This addon is for amlogic devices - it won't work on a pi.
    There is a vnc addon for a pi - I think it's in the libreelec repo, can't check right now.

  • Awesome, I can connect on my local network. AWESOME.


    Is it possible to connect to a remote Libreelec???


    That would be the icing on the cake.

    Yes it is possible. I have vnc working both locally and through the internet. You have to forward the ports 5800 & 5900 on your router to point to your LE local IP. works like a charm.You will need either a static IP address or use no-ip dynamic dns service (like I do) for it to work.

  • So what about if I want to offer remote support to someone?


    I am able to get their www ip address from the box.


    Would they then have to configure their router to open ports 5800 and 5900 or temporarily put it in the DMZ, for me to connect to them?


    Regards.

  • Be careful when opening ports to the world. The "aml-vnc" addon is a very simple with almost no security measures.


  • Yes open those ports to point to the local ip of the LE box or DMZ to the local IP of the LE box. If you are going to involve the client then you can also use Teamviewer. No need to forward any ports and you can access the LE box locally from the clients pc/laptop.

  • That sounds like the best way. Would I have to install realVNC on their machine before starting the remote access? I would assume so.

    If you install realVNC on the clients machine, You would have to open the VNC ports I mentioned earlier on the router :(. If instead you install Teamviewer (Free version) on both the client and your machine, you do not have to open any ports as the connection is made using their servers.

  • Hmm now I a bit confused. Which software works with the aml-vnc then.
    I thought RealVNC was installed in the clients PC and that was what accessed the local network and media box running LE.
