I have an Ionics brand sheevaplug. I can connect to it using the jtag/usb connection, and SSH, so I know it's working. The plug is on ethernet through a switch, and to the internet through a router. I can ping to it ok. It can also connect to the internet, as I have successfully used the package system to put Transmission bittorrent client onto the plug. I would like to use VNC to connect, but it (uVNC and TightVNC) says 'cannot connect'.

 Bearing in mind that I am not highly conversant with linux, can anyone point out how to get VNC on my plug, or point me to the info? Thanks in advance.

You are far better using transmission via the WEB-UI.

apt-get install transmission-daemon

MAKE SURE TRANSMISSION-DAEMON IS NOT RUNNING WHEN YOU EDIT THE FILE!!  All the changes get lost!!

Stop the transmission daemon using:  /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop

You will then need to configure the settings:

nano /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json

You will like need to edit the following settings to allow remote LAN access : (here is snippet of mine as an example that assumes your local lan is 192.168.1.x based:)

 "rpc-whitelist": "192.168.1.*",
 "rpc-whitelist-enabled": true,


You can then save the file, start transmission-darmon, in the same way you stopped it (changing stop for start obviously).  And then access the Transmission client via your web browser on port 9091

thanks, actually I managed to get it going with a bit of headscratching and some external pages I found. Am I able to link to them here for the future reference of others?

I've still got a ways to go yet until I have the thing doing what I'd like it too, but progress is good...
