I've just rooted and installed Debian to SDCard successfully on an Acer Iconia A1-830, bu am having some problems connecting to it locally (at either 127.0.0.1 or localhost) using either VNC or RDP.
I can easily connect to it from another computer over the local network (using rdesktop on a linux machine) but I can't connect from the tablet itself using AndroidVNC or 2X Client (free edition).
The successful connection is via sesman-VNC protocol to port 3389. But again, this is from a remote computer, not the tablet itself.
Unsuccessful tablet clients:
Using RDP, the 2X client fails at port 3389 with an error code [1b/00020005] RDB Internal Error. There's no further explanation.
With AndroidVNC, client, the connection is simply refused at 5901, (ECONNREFUSED) despite using the same connection parameters and login as the networked machine connection. I've tried ports 5900, 5901, and 3389.
I'm attaching a screenshot of the tablet desktop through the remote client VNC connection -- so I know the Debian install is running and functioning well.
Can anyone explain why I can't connect locally? Is there some kind of firewall internally that stops connections to the localhost? I've checked the hosts-deny file and hosts file and don't see anything there that would explain it. Any other suggestions?
