    Default guidance - remote access (internal network) with sound

    Hello,

    using opensuse 13.1 on several computers at home, internal network
    I would like to get rid of a kvm switch (and associated wires)

    I have tried krfb and it works, ....well ok,
    barring any sound.

    is there a way to get sound form the remote pc as well?

    Any keyword suggestions / pointers would be great.


    thank you for your time

    A little additional search and found a nice tutorial to get pulseaudio to network using pavolcontrol

    Thanks for the responses.
    Ended up using x2go.
    how I did it:


    the server:
    considered the computer that you would like to tunnel into
    There is a one click install: http://software.opensuse.org/package/x2goserver

    in yast you should have pulseaudio, fuse, sshd installed.
    users and groups ensure that user is a member of the "trusted" group (for file sharing)
    firewall > external zone > add secure shell server to open up port 22

    the application just runs and you don’t have to do anything

    the client:
    One click install: http://software.opensuse.org/package/x2goclient
    yast:
    in yast you should have pulseaudio, fuse, sshd installed.
    firewall > external zone > add secure shell server to open up port 22
    users and groups ensure that user is a member of the "trusted" group (for file sharing)

    test the ssh by opening a terminal window and doing username@IPaddressof_X2GO-SERVER

    open x2goclient
    enter ip of new address (Server), username, SSH = 22 and click on the upper left box to launch instance, enter the password for the user.



    Works like a champ.
    hope this helps someone.
