Description Andy Burns 2007-04-01 12:43:55 UTC
Description of problem:

When perfoming a vnc install of rawhide, the message from the VNC server doesn't
actually inform the user of the actual IP addr to connect remotely.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. pxe boot, using http install with vnc
Actual results:

WARNING!!! VNC server running with NO PASSWORD!
You can use the vncpassword=<password> boot option
if you would like to secure the server.

12:27:02 INFO : The VNC server is now running.
12:27:02 INFO : Please connect to localhost.localdomain:1 to begin the install

Expected results:

INFO messages should show actual IP address for VNC connection, instead of
localhost, in my case which has been assigned by DHCP.

Additional info:
Machine has dual NIC, only eth0 is connected.
