Do VNC clients work with Replit?

I'm trying to connect to my Python REPLs via VNC as explained in the documentation. But when I open a connection with the Remmina client on Linux (Crostini on Chrome OS) I get the error VNC server closed connection. I'm reasonably sure the REPLs are properly configured and the credentials are correct.

Is connecting to REPLs supposed to work with clients other than noVNC? Any suggestions?

One thing I've noticed is Remmina doesn't let me customzie the port and path of the connection's websocket, which Replit seems to require. So I'll try another VNC client.

@RayhanADev @InvisibleOne I'm making some progress.

It turns out all the VNC clients I installed support specifying an alternate port with a syntax such as host.example.com:443 (Remmina) or host.example.com::443 (VNC Connect).

When I try to open a connection to a REPL I no longer get an error. But the connection progress indicator goes on indefinitely and nothing happens. This happens also when running the VNC client from Android, which suggests this is not a Crostini issue.
