VNC over hotspot

VNC over hotspot was created by Lenny

Hi folks,
I wonder if you could give me some advice. I have a UTx-3115 fanless pc setup to run Ubuntu and Kstars. I have real VNC and vino set up and I am able to VNC to the device over the internet and my WiFi’.
However when I create a hotspot on the device and try to connect I get a port is not listening error and I can’t figure it out.
I’ve tried the internal IP and the device name but cannot connect. There is no firewall running.
Obviously I want the hotspot so I can control my device when I’m imaging at my remote location. I was using a Pi but figured the fanless pc was more rugged.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated
Thanks.
Lenny.

just to be sure: you have to disconnect your PC from your home wifi (losing internet access) and connect to the Raspi wifi before VNC’ìng

Lenny,

Can you ssh into the account?

If so, it must be something blocking the port or you are using the wrong port.

Thanks Folks,
Jabian, yes i am completely disconnected and my (phone ) which I am using to try control device is connected to the Hot spot I created.

Phomer60, Yes I can SSH into the device over the hotspot which is the weird thing. I did notice that the output of
netstat -nl | grep 5900
results in:
tcp    0     0  0.0.0.0:5900            0.0.0.0:*       LISTEN
tcp6   0     0 :::5900                  :::*            LISTEN
while the same command on the hotspot yields no result.
Its like the VNC server isn't listening when I switch over and I don't know why, maybe the wifi card dosent support it ? (Intel wireless 7260) but I checked and it is supposed to.
