So i set up a virtual machine on QEMU on my linux machine hoping to get some windows server running but when i tried to set up RDP i couldn't connect through my client. So i thought i'd try RealVNC instead of RDP and when i tried to connect it just hung and said timed out... So then i went to RealVNCs test page and it said Connection Refused (111). I can connect to the internet just fine, i tried turning my firewall off and nothing has worked.. I'm not sure if it's a connection issue or what.

Really Stumped here.


  • Have you checked Windows Firewall on the Windows machine? Got to poke holes in it, or disable it. – Ryan Ries Sep 7 '15 at 2:18
