    Default How install tightvnc to opensuse 11.3 and use it on windows ?

    I am new to opensuse and an expert on windows.

    I am having trouble finding a good tutorial on how to install tightvnc on opensuse 11.3 (firewall on, automatically starting up) and using it on windows 7.

    Thank you

    11.3 is effectively end of life, so you may need to either update or
    select one of the discontinued repositories.

    Then just run:

    zypper in tightvnc

    That should take care of opening the appropriate firewall ports and
    probably will have it automatically run. On my 12.1 system, it does seem
    to be set up to automatically start.

    If you want to control display :0, though (the desktop), that's a little
    different.

    I last looked at this in mid 2010 so it sounds about your vintage, it might help: HowTo: TightVNC Remote Desktop Connections using openSUSE as Client or Server
    It worked ok in 12.1 recently, probably still works in 11.3
