    3) Is there a better/safer way to set the server for LAN user, using another program, perhaps?

    oS 13.2 box:

    4) What client should I use? There are a number of clients in oS 13.2 repos, like GTK-vnc, novnc, etc. Or another one?

    Thanks,

    Even I face similar problem with VNC in my set up. I found following workaround

    1. Enable ssh service in your server machine and permit in the firewall.
    2. Using your client, login to server thr'
    Code:
    ssh user@server
    3. After successful login, type
    Code:
    vncserver
    .
    4. Prompt will show the port (5901 or 5902 or....)
    5. Using any of VNC viewer software, type
    Code:
    server:5901
    ..... U will be able to access server thru client.

    Not sure what you mean, but if you have firewall enabled and interface belongs to restricted zone, then port won't be opened for incoming connection. You can do it manually later of course. Sounds like a bug.

    Note that by default VNC server that is enabled will use public key authentication.

    2) Any way to fix this drop-to-terminal thing, or is it worth a bug report?
    I do not see it with lightdm and XFCE.

    3) Is there a better/safer way to set the server for LAN user, using another program, perhaps?
    SSH?

    I've also experienced this issue on multiple openSUSE Leap and Tumbleweed installs.

    The problem is...

    Whenever you enable remote access via Yast it crashes the xserver - this is a bug which needs fixing!

    You'll have to be very specific about how you're set up and invoke your VNC Server,
    When I review this Forum thread, I count <at least> 3 main ways described.
    Every described way can work, but if there is any problem, that problem will be unique to that specific setup.

    If your x server crashes, would it be because contention, ie an x server is already running using same resources when you invoke another?
    It's why in my posts, I described reading and following the Community Documentation, because when you install using the YaST Remote Administration module, it's a particular setup that sets up VNC in a specific way. If you then go your own way and do something that doesn't conflict, then it should still work... else... possible problems.
