First, the config :
Sorry but I forgot to mention that I was trying to get the VNC server running on BeagleBoard to export display to my Windows Box as I do not have a DVI monitor.(http://groups.google.com/group/beagleboard/browse_thread/thread/f8d105e182f69f29/60979e58adc51f13?lnk=gst&q=vnc&pli=1)… Please help.
Do you have a Windows firewall enabled that is blocking pings?
What is the behavior when you attempt to make the VNC connection (which would initiate on the Windows host)?
Are you running XP or Vista?
No, I have the firewal disabled… I am running Windows XP.
Actually, I didn’t install VNC as yet since the first step of reaching the Windows Host (as mentioned in your guide) is not successful.
I assume that the Windows PC is not blocking the Ping since from Wireshark traces, the first step towards ICMP i.e. ARP is being replied fine by the windows host, with its MAC address… Problem is that ARP requestes from Beagle still keep coming…
There is one more sympton to add…
Wireshark (running on windows side) shows that the ARP requests are also not coming very frequently but only after a long interval (3-4 seconds or more). Is there something I can do to diagnose the problem on Angstrom side ? Does it have some builtin packet sniffer etc ?
I am desperate to see the Beagle GUI output but not having a DVI monitor and also not able to run VNC is taking its toll
