We have the VNC server set up in Haiku Alpha 4 and it works great, except it occasionally stops functioning. We had the same exact problem with BeOS 5.03. It doesn’t drop connection while someone is connected remotely, it’s just that at some point during the day or night it ceases to function so that connecting remotely is not possible. Sometimes it will be fine for many days, other times only a day or so. Connecting with FTP remotely still works fine.
I’m guessing that the ethernet connection drops out occasionally, and VNC server doesn’t automatically “reset” or whatever, unlike Haiku’s FTP server. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this, maybe a script that reloads or reconnects VNC server every few hours? Also trying to figure out how to remotely execute a script using FTP, but so far no luck. We use VNC server extensively, and it’s costly in gasoline to keep driving over to reload VNC server on the Haiku computer. Thanks for any help.
