I’ve used VNC server in the past upt to suse version 9…nish.
Since then I’ve not been able to successfully make it work.
I’ve found a number of similar posts on the web, with similar complains, and followed their procedures with 0.000001% luck.
Currently I get to the point where I get on the vnc client a password request that says “no auth password”
I’ve enabled VNC server on the firewall, i’ve added a password using ‘vncpasswd’ etc etc. In fact I only managed once to connect remotely. Then I rebooted the computer and it did not work again.
I also tried the desktop sharing, and at some point also tweaked some vnc confuration file.
I’ve even considered, after many years of using SUSE, switching to centos, as it appears easier to configure there.
Since I’ve seen tons of tons of posts with similar nightmares installing VNC, I was wondering whether:
Is VNC hard to configure by design…? Does suse really not want you to use it?
Is there a viable Suse alternative, i’ve heard of rdp servers that are not vnc on Linux (I can connect via SSH, but I want graphic gui) ?
Since I might have screwed the vnc server configuration file, would removing all the vnc packages and trying again resolve the issue/ help in any way?
Which packages should I install (I know there are different vnc servers)
Thanks in advance for any help.
Assuming I manage to install it?
In the past (Suse 9nish or before) I was able to login via vnc to kde, but recent versions apparntly only allow you to share your desktop, after you are logged in, which does not help if you want to login remotely.
Is it posible to do that nowdays in vnc?
