Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP 3.0 and VNC server



To use the VNC session in Linux, through a browser is pretty much the same as in Windows. The Linux VNC server can also out-of-the-box work in a browser window.

You just need to specify the proper port, and to make sure that you have port-forwarding sent up properly if you're going through a firewall.

If you start a vncserver session with:

vncserver :1 on 192.168.1.100, then from another box's browser, you need to call:

192.168.1.100:5801

A default windows session usually begins with display 0, so you need to call it as:

192.168.1.200:5800

Using this form you can run MANY vnc sessions on one box, if you want. If you are using KDE though, you'll get the famous DCOP errors if a kde session is running on 0, and you also try to connect to it on 1. It is better just to ssh into the box, start the vncserver session, then let'er rip.

I hope this is helpful.

Jim
