Unable to connect through VNC

I use VNC on a handful of devices that display web pages around my site

Occassionally, I need to remote on to them to do 'stuff' to them like refresh the page/hide a dialogue etc

I would like to be able to use Terminals to connect to these but it never works

The machines are all Ubuntu 12.04 using the x11vnc server with no password on display :1. In TightVNC (the client of choice here), I just enter the hostname and nothing else but I can't get terminals to do anything

When I set it up and hit connect, it just fails and tells me to check the log but the logs don't hold anything useful

Any ideas?

Thank you

Have a look at this item:
I was able to connect using a saved credential with "vnc" as user!
