Thread: Tight VNC questions?

  1. #1

    Default Tight VNC questions?

    OJK, I can see in package manager all the tightVNC server packages that are installed, but I can't get it to work. I just need to access the system from a Vista machine.

    On the Vista machine I have the TightVNC viewer, but the connection times out.

    I can not find the application or how to configure it on the Suse 11.0 machine.

    I have looked for tutorials, but it does not look like what I am simply trying to do.

    Enable remote desktop on linux using VNC | Linglom's Blog

    Everything worked until I go to here;

    jmariscal@ITSUSE:~> chkconfig vncserver on
    bash: chkconfig: command not found
    jmariscal@ITSUSE:~> su
    Password:
    ITSUSE:/home/jmariscal # chkconfig vncserver on
    vncserver: unknown service
    ITSUSE:/home/jmariscal # service vncserver start
    service: no such service vncserver

    Please help!

    Hi
    The service on openSUSE is vnc so that would be;
    Code:
    sudo /sbin/chkconfig vnc on
