Unsecured VNC on GNOME: Local

  • Installation

    • On Debian or Ubuntu, apt-get install xvnc4viewer

    • On Fedora Core, yum-install vnc

  • Assuming the server on the remote host (e.g. vino) is running with the defaults, and there is only one display, you should be able to vncviewer remotehost :0 (though :0 is really optional in this case)

  • Multiple monitor desktops are not supported yet, but that support is in progress. You can still access the primary monitor (X display :0.0)

  • On Debian and Ubuntu with GNOME there is an GUI for starting vncviewer under Applications|Internet. It is called Terminal┬áServer┬áClient (see next slide)
