Error: “VNC desktop: 192.168.x.x:5900 Error: I/0 error: Connection refused: connect” connecting though Remote Shadowing

Hello everyone!

I got a converted HP T520 ThinClient device (version in the UMS Console (version 6.06.110) and even though the device is on the same network as all the other devices and also does have the same configuration profile, I can’t connect though Remote Shadowing. The error message is the following when trying to connect. Do you have any idea what the issue could be?

Hey, can you check if the device’s time is correct? Usually setting a profile to set the time for your devices is always a good/best practice:

Also, you can ‘send a message to a device’ to ensure the UMS/ICG is seeing the device. If this works, it’s probably time:

Thanks for the reply.

The time configuration was indeed not correct but after correcting it and rebooting the device, it still didn’t do the job.

Hello Pedro! Just in case: is shadowing working somewhere else? What are your settings made in your Shadowing profile? Is someone needing to accept the connect maybe?

Hello Sebastien.

Yes, shadowing is working for other devices.

These are my settings for the shadowing profile.

Would you have any idea what else I could try?

Hello @member

I managed to solve the issue. The folder which I was using to connect to the device seemed to have some form of corruption. I tried moving the device to a folder with an identical profile and also tried creating a new one – everything worked fine. Also, the licensing was also identical. I just deleted that “corrupt” folder, created a new one and assigned the same objects to it, fixed the issue.
