Problem with RDP/VNC
@ldemorgan . Yes, downloaded the latest from the site, and ran "pimpup" immediately.
@ldemorgan. I am very much Noob on Pimp, I downloaded it a few days ago, and see I downloaded V2.4.2-all, and then ran pimpup.....not sure if that updates to 2.5.
I will download 2.5-all this evening and try that and confirm.
We here to help where we can Slvorester - yes please try 2.5-all and let us know how you get on.
I'm having the same issue. Just updated PiMP to the most recent as of today. Tried the command above but nothing changed.
What error message do you receive? - Is it the "error connecting to 5900"?

@ldemorgan. Ok. I have re-imaged my drive with a fresh copy of 2.5-all. I first ran it in a small nvidia rig, and can access the directly connected GUI, a RDP GUI, and SSH. I have taken that same drive to my AMD rig. it starts up and then stops at the following screen, with multiple "Invalid PCI ROM Header".
. I cannot access the RDP either, but I can access via SSH, and start a miner successfully....
Any guidance will be appreciated.
Hello @ldemorgan -
“Error connecting to 127.0.0.1 5900”. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Sorry for my late reply - yes dev team have been notified, and when I receive an update, I will let you know via this forum thread.
Thanks for your continued support.
Thank you Louis
I will wait for your reply before I try again.

Hey. I'm having the exact same issue. I've tried running "systemctl start lightdm && systemctl start --user pimpvnc". It runs correctly (no error) but connecting via RDP gives the "Error connecting to 127.0.0.1 5900" message.
@ldemorgan thanks for your help!

Hi, I'm running version 2.5-all also and I can't remote connect either. When I run " helpme " this is the screen dump output;

I have the same issue with starting PiMP VNC service:
[/root]:# systemctl --user status pimpvnc.service

then I tried to run VNC command as root:
(ExecStart string used in the /etc/systemd/user/pimpvnc.service)
[/root]:# /usr/bin/x11vnc -v -display :0 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/:0 -nopw -logappend /var/log/pimpvnc.log
…it had been running fine
The x11vnc have a problem to read "auth file" when it launched under "pimp" user :
[/root]:# ls -al /var/run/lightdm/root/
drwx------ 2 root root 60 Mar 28 10:00 .
drwx--x--x 3 root root 60 Mar 27 02:34 ..
-rw------- 1 root root 50 Mar 27 10:52 :0
please consider to correct directory/file rights..?
We do not provide a 'pimp' user, all operations on a pimp rig are performed from the root account.
This vnc issue was fixed 3 pimpups ago. If not, reimage using the latest image for your GPUs and run

I have upgraded to pimp 2.8.6. I have an ASROCK BTC Mobo. If I run 7+ AMD XFX 580s, xrdp fails to start. If I have seven or less xrdp will run. The rig will run normally with 7+ GPUs, but no console screen or Remote Desktop, but ssh works. I have tried running the referenced commands above but no process stays connects to the vnc port 5900.
Hi, This is a limitation of the amdgpu-pro driver and/or your motherboard's pcie enumeration under linux. If you want to run a rig with 7+ AMD GPU then you simply use miner.farm and ssh to access the rig. There is no GUI function that cannot be done via SSH. We even include
pbecthe polaris bios editor for console! :)
