Re: need sd card backup on r-pi-3b

I don't know, it just works for me.  Even over VNC, I just tried it
from vncviewer on an OpenBSD machine.  The "copy from device" is blank
until I click the down arrow on it, then it finds /dev/mmcblk0.  I'm
running it on the machine that's running tightvncserver which I'm
logged into.  I use VNC a lot, I've maybe gotten a remote X connection
to work a couple times years ago.  The wrong authentication thing,
have you looked at the xhost man page?  I remember sometimes you have
to do
  xhost +localhost
and any remote machines you want to connect from have to be added in a
similar way.  With vnc you just need to set up the password with
vncpasswd.  Then you type like tightvncserver in a terminal window to
start it.  From the remote machine you type vncviewer and the IP or
machine name:display.  Server and client software names may be
different from mine, you need one of each.  I've even had an android
vnc client that worked over wifi from a phone.  Wheezy or Jessie
shouldn't matter, remote X has been around for like 35 years.  Since
dialup modems have been around.

Why are you at localhost:11?  Usually it's localhost:0.  Are you
logged in from 10 other machines too or something?  Try 'echo
$DISPLAY' and see what it says, mine says :0.  Ooops, the Pi says
:1.0, OpenBSD says :0.  vnc display numbers are similar but not
compatible as far as I know with X  connections.

I just did (on a pi):
pi2# xhost +192.168.7 and got
192.168.7 being added to access control list
But when I try xterm -display in an ssh window to the pi
from openbsd I get crap about running as root and it refuses.  There
might be a way to put a username in there like you can ssh to
user@machine or in mc you cd to ftp://user:pass@machine.  15 years ago
my girlfriend at the time thought it was cool so we did it a couple
times.  VNC I've used a lot more.  Daily just about.  Sometime it's
open for a week at a time.

No, I won't  call it "climate change", do you have a "reality problem"? - AB1JX
