Thank you very much. you solved the problem for me. I launched the vncviewer in kterm. It can successfully connect with TightVNC server. However, It seems that I have a scaling problem. Not all the screen fits into kindle. In fact, part of the bottom and right part of the screen is cropped. I tried to change client_width and height in the file config.lua but nothing changed. Also, I set the screen resolution in server configuration.
What can I do for this?

Thanks for your help but adding this option just rotates the screen to portrait. The screen connects in landscape as default. My monitor is 1920*1080.
I tried to use:
./luajit vncviewer.lua -scale 2(and 0.5) 192.168.1.5:5900
but it didn't change anything

I follow your instruction to connect my raspberry pi to kindle paperwhite.
However, KTerm return:
ConnectToTcpAddr: connect
Unable to connect to VNC server

I try to connect raspberry pi to my window 10 laptop via RealVNC and it's Okay with no error message shown.

It seems like I do something wrong with my kindle setup, can anyone help me?

Can you ping the PIs address?

are you using a direct USB connection or Wifi? a direct USB connection to the PI requires some extra set up on the PI side to work propery.
