CentOS 7 Screen Sharing - Unknown authType 18

Post by alexus » 2014/12/10 20:39:25

I'm trying to VNC to my Cent OS 7 and I'm getting following error:

Code: Select all

Unknown authType 18
I looked at HowTos/VNC-Server - CentOS Wiki, but that covers only Cent OS 6.

Please advise.

What machine are you running vnc-client on?

Yes, following resolved my issue, but at the cost of disabling encryption:

Code: Select all

[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ gsettings get org.gnome.Vino require-encryption
true
[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false
[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$ gsettings get org.gnome.Vino require-encryption
false
[alexus@wcmisdlin02 ~]$
