VNCserver Configure on Linux

What is VNCserver?

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing.

Why use VNCserver?

In Linux, everything can be done from a shell. However, there may be a time when you need to access the machine as if you were at the console.

Getting Started

You will need several things to get started:

root privledges
VNC client software (tightVNC)
A good password!

As I mentioned above, this example is done with RHEL, which comes standard with VNCserver installed. To start the vncserver simply invoke the following commands:

[root@eit etc]# service vncserver start
Starting VNC server: [ OK ]
[root@eit etc]#
[root@eit etc]# vncpasswd

[root@eit etc]#
[root@eit etc]# vncserver
New 'eit:1 (root)' desktop is eit:1
Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/eit:1.log
[root@eit etc]#

[root@eit .vnc]# vi xstartup

Using vi (vim) to edit the xstartup file, make sure your file matches this one:
# Uncomment the following two lines for normal desktop:

exec /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

[ -x /etc/vnc/xstartup ] && exec /etc/vnc/xstartup
[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
vncconfig -iconic &
xterm -geometry 80x24+10+10 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
twm &
startx &
