    Hi Ravi, I hope you can give me a hint on a way to go, I am out of ideas.

    Ref. Your Tutorial – Web Access from a Desktop to a TightVNCServer (https://www.tecmint.com/vnc-desktop-access-from-web-browser/vncweb-2/)

    TightVNCViewer works fine with my TightVNCServer.

    I followed your great tutorial down the line, including installing the Java Web Extensions but I am not getting a correct response from the XTightVNCServer on my Raspberry Pi. Using SSH from my Remote, I can see that the Raspberry is listening on ports 5801 & 5901.

    Entering “http://raspi01/vncweb/” from the remote browser presents a screen like yours with “TightVNC Web Site” but clicking it routes me to http://www.tightvnc.com/, not to the XTightVNCServer. This is happenning with both with a Linux (Ubuntu 15.10 Jessie + Kernel 4.2)and W7 remote desktop.

    When trying raspi01:5801 (Raspberry using Jessie and Linux 4.2 kernel) from Chrome, I get “This (Java 8.66) plugin not supported” (in German) so I know at least that I am getting through to the Pi.

    Although cat .vnc/raspi01:1.log shows no entries, /var/log/syslog on the Pi shows that systemd starts a session in response to the Remote web request

    Thanks in advance David
