I have been spending the last 4 hours trying to get my VNC connection to work. Eventually, I realized it was because my Ubuntu remote host was unable to host SSH connections- even though I had already installed openssh-server.
I then tried some basic tests to verify that
sshd was working on my machine, and found that
ssh localhost gives a
Connection refused on port 22 error. Also,
sudo service ssh start and
sudo start ssh both give a
start: Unknown job: ssh error. I tried purging and reinstalling
openssh-server, but no luck. Why can't I receive clients?
EDIT: When I try to connect via the local machines (the VNC viewers) they give me a
Connection timed out error.
EDIT_2: As requested, here is the output of
apt-cache policy openssh-server:
