How To Use VNC/Remmina to Remote Control an openSUSE 12.3 KDE Desktop

Rate this Entry
So I am no expert on desktop remote control, but I just used VNC/Krfb to remote an openSUSE 12.3 KDE desktop to an openSUSE 12.2 PC running VNC/Remmina and it worked just fine. This came from a message post I had made in the forum, but I thought it was worth sharing here in a blog post.

On the openSUSE 12.3 I did three things:

1) Enabled Services in Firewall for VNC:



2) I enabled VNC from Terminal:

Code:
vncserver :1
3) I fired up Krfb and configured as seen here:



4) Opened up Remmina on remote openSUSE 12.2 (where VNC had already been setup and Firewall opened)



And it all works like a champ. For users who wish to remote control an openSUSE PC from Windows, have a look at this free download: Free, Lightweight, Fast and Reliable: Download TightVNC

If you have any comments of suggestions, please let me know what they are.
