Cannot access server on laptop

Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:44 pm

When I run the vnc-client on Raspberry I get the message:

Timed out waiting for a response from the computer

I can ping the server on the laptop from the Raspberry and I can ping the Raspberry from the laptop.

The last from dmesg:
[17648.865978] [UFW BLOCK] IN=wlp3s0 OUT= MAC=70:1c:e7:2f:e9:d2:b8:27:eb:b9:6c:fc:08:00 SRC= DST= LEN=60 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=28254 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=36708 DPT=5900 WINDOW=29200 RES=0x00 SYN URGP=0

xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
startxfce4 &

Stop using TightVNC, switch to RealVNC which has better support for Raspberry Pis running Raspbian.
