    Good evening gentlemen,

    I've got debian running on my palm pre plus! Thanks for that Great job from those palm hackers!!!
    But there's one thing where I'm stuck: I want to run a VNC server on it and connect from the local wifi network to control the debian on the palm from remote.
    I've tried tightvncserver and x11vnc server which both work: I could connect using a vncviewer from the palm, but I cannot connect to the palm a remote notebook in the wifi network. Network connection seems to be ok - at least I can ping the palm from the network; but I can't access these VNC ports

    Am I missing something? Is there some kind of firewall on the palm???

    Please help!

    Hey, I just got this working on the touchpad.

    for me is was a route issue, my home LAN is 192.168.0.0/24 (eth0) and the webos USB interface has a route 192.168.0.0/24 (usb0). I deleted the route to the usb interface and I can now get to the other hosts on my lan via the chroot.

    Edit: this was done in the webos not the chroot.
