Hm, I only know (believe with enough confidence, that is) of Port 22 (SSH) :-) I'll try to check again tomorrow (meaning within 24 hours from now). I think I remember seeing configuration files for the daemon (it's one of the special fit daemons started upon boot) that does this.

Err, I have done both the installs, and neither one of them had a *.azw2 file anywhere...?

EDIT: Doh, the whitelist. I'm a fool. I added update_ss_trial to the whitelist and she worked. So far no go on the connection, but that's probably because I'm a VNC noob. I will be hanging with some geek mates this arvo, and so will give it a go then.

Hi, I paid $3 and installed the vnc on my kindle 3, connect to my pc via wifi, but the screen refresh rate is too slow to be useful, no where near the speed of this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdSRcZQoEJo

Is there anyway i can connect to vnc server via usb and make it faster?

I tried to run this on Touch and here it goes:
Code
./ufbvncd: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
so I created a symbolic link:
Code
ln -s libjpeg.so libjpeg.so.62
and in vain hope of being successful, finally I got the following error:

Code
ufbvncd: open_device> cannot open framebuffer device "/dev/fb/0"
ufbvncd: startup> cannot open device
which I guess confirms what geekmaster said about framebuffer difference between KT and other Kindles here.

So, is there anyway we can have VNC server on Touch?

/dev/fb/0 was an alias for /dev/fb0 that does not exist on newer kindles. Replace /dev/fb/0 with /dev/fb0 and you are golden, but you still have the "bits-per-pixel" and "line_length" details you must deal with. In a script, you can use eips -i|grep ... to extract that information. You can look at these scripts for examples:

just found i can get this working on my kindle 4 after all
unpacked & installed manually, edited the external.policy, and ran the kindlet. no access to the virtual keyboard to edit the connection settings, but quitting the kindlet then editing /mnt/us/developer/KindleVNC/work/bm.properties to set the ip/port/password then restarting the kindlet solved that.

i first tried connecting to os x's built-in screen sharing, as someone earlier in the thread mentioned it worked for them, but for me the connection would immediately drop every time. tried an alternative vnc server on my mac (vine server) and it works perfectly

The program works like a charm. I am wondering if these features could be implemented:
1 Remove the the title bar (the bar that has "kindlevnc: press home to exit"), it takes precious space.
2 Zoom feature like the scale feature in many vncviewer. The current program left a lot space unused for low resolution screen.
3 portrait display. lt will be useful in reading pdfs. I can set a virtual monitor with 1200X824 resolution by zonescreen, then set it in portrait mode in ultramon, after that connect to the 2nd monitor via tightVNC, ideally I should get the destop without scrolling. I tried kindlevncviewer too, it also doesn't support the portrait mode.
Thank you for your consideration.

It can create a virtual monitor with any resolution, like 1200X824 or 824X1200. Then you can set the vnc server to use that monitor, and set extended desktop in windows xp. Now you have an extra monitor and can drag any window to that desktop.
