Hello, I have searched all over Google and I cannot find a step-by-step guide on how to install XRDP or XVNC properly.
Basically, I have this installed on a machine on my local network that doesn’t need to be connected to my KVM switch and I would like to remote into it, other than SSH, so I can use the desktop for specific things.
However, when I set up XRDP or XVNC, they all try to connect via the loopback address instead of just going straight to the desktop.
I tried the above, and this is what I get through PuTTY.
applejack@linux-thy1:~> ssh -L 5911:localhost:5901 applejack@linux-thy1
ssh: Could not resolve hostname linux-thy1: Name or service not known
applejack@linux-thy1:~> vncviewer localhost:11
Error: Can't open display:
I also tried connecting via TightVNC, and I get this error.
I should I also explain that I tried allowing VNC/RDP through Firewall, and it just ends up resetting itself every time I go into YaST. So I ended up turning Firewall off just to see if maybe it wasn’t a config file that I forgot to edit or if I was literally doing something wrong, and I can connect to the machine, but I cannot log in.
