I am running a Ubuntu 11.10 virtual machine under KVM hypervisor, bridged and connected to the local network. I installed VNCServer in the virtual machine and tried remote desktop, What happens is when i remotely connect to the virtual machine (through VNC i used to add the :1 tag), the desktop is greyed out and i can access only the terminal (Pressing Ctrl+Alt+T in desktop). From terminal i can open firefox and other GUI installed software. The thing is I cannot see my desktop. At the terminal whenever i press the letter 'd' it is going to desktop.
And, When i tried to access the remote machine only with the IP (with no vnc tag in remote desktop viewer) it returns .. "cannot connect to host XX.XXX.XX.XX was closed".
Pl help me thro' this problem
