Hi I have just loaded 11.2 from cd i,m a new user to open suse I need to be able to remote into my other machine and be able to control the desktop from this machine over local LAN, is there a program installed or do I have to install something the desktop is all set up to allow other users to control it.

If your other PC are running Windoze you cau use rdesktop else use vnc


Microsoft Windows is like air conditioning
Stops working when you open a window.
Version: GnuPG v2.0.12 (GNU/Linux)
Comment: Using GnuPG with SUSE -


If the other machine is a Linux PC then I recommend nx: NoMachine NX - Desktop Virtualization and Remote Access Management Software

Ok the other machine is running Ubuntu thats what I have just moved from, so I will try VNC, Now for the bit about downloading and installing from terminal I know it,s zypper Could some1 point me in the wright direction plz

sudo zypper ???

Take a look here:
Zypper/Usage/11.2 - openSUSE
… note there are also pdf cheat sheets you can download, print and even laminate if you wish :slight_smile:

Easiest way to enable vnc is from yast2>network devices.
You can then connect to the hast computer by typing:
vncviewer ipaddress:screen_no
where screen_no is the screen number (try 1)
Make sure vnc is installed and enabled on the ubuntu system and that the necessary firewall ports are open.
