Thread: Is it Easy to configure VNC Viewer?

  1. #1

    Question Is it Easy to configure VNC Viewer?

    want to be able to configure VNC to remotely access my
    Server from the server room via vncviewer.

    assuming need to go to software apps rpm contains in yast
    search for vnc server install it. Then I assume the vnc viewer on my xp workstation will access it?

    Assuming you log in to your server via ssh, you should be able to adapt the following code to your needs - run it on the server.

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    SERVER=thenameofyourserver
    
    # This kills previous VNC sessions lying around...
    2>&1 vncserver -kill :1
    2>&1 killall Xvnc
    2>&1 rm -f .vnc/${SERVER}:1.pid
    
    vncserver -geometry 1120x896 :1
    sleep 3
    vncviewer -passwd ${HOME}/.vnc/passwd ${SERVER}:1
    You'll need to open a port when you ssh login, again, substitute the variables

    Code:
    ssh -L 5901:${LOCALMACHINE}:5901 ${SERVER}

    Whoops, I didn't notice you were using WinXP. Most of the tricks you'll need are still applicable though, just not the line about vncviewer.

    Question Re: Is it Easy to configure VNC Viewer?

    I got tight VNC to work from inside kde desktop.
    But it is tedious to walk over to the Server, to send an invitation to get in.
    Is there any way to set it to keep the tight VNC server
    on all the time, with out needing to send an invitation?
