VNC to Pi

Postby tony1812 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 1:32 pm

Hello, I am a Pi newbie and Linux.
On my Pi 3 model 3, I installed the Raspbian. Under Perferance->Configuration->Interfae I ckecked Enable VNC, reboot the Pi
I would like me Mac to be able to control the Pi throught VNC
On the Mac Sierra 10.12.5, I downloaded and installed VNC viewer.
In VNC viewer, I type in the correct ip. In user name I used Pi, In password I used raspberry, but on VNC viewer, it keeps telling me the user name or password is not recongnized. What am I doing wrong? Thanks
