How to vnc from XP to Suse Linux How to vnc from XP to Suse Linux jakess (TechnicalUser) (OP) 14 Mar 06 06:43 Can someone please tell me how to vnc from Win XP to Suse server and how to configure Suse to accept vnc connections RE: How to vnc from XP to Suse Linux IRudebwoy (IS/IT--Management) 14 Mar 06 16:26 What SuSE version?If you are using SuSE 10 edit /etc/xinetd.d/vnc to your liking.The file has everthing ready to go, just changedisable = yestodisable = noon the section you want to use then issue to following as rootrcxinetd restartIssue netstat -nap | grep xinetd and look for a line similar to thistcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5901 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 6422/xinetdThen point the viewer to <hostname or IP of the server>:1 and you're off. RE: How to vnc from XP to Suse Linux Kozusnik (Programmer) 15 Mar 06 18:18 Or run vncpasswd, create a pw for it, then run vncserver on Suse. Next run the viewer from Xp and use the ip or hostname of the server :1 (that's colon 1) If it's the only vncserver running, 1 will be the correct number. If you don't kill vncserver correctly or run it again, you'll need to use 2 as so. Run vncviewer -> 192.168.1.21:2.To kill the server, you'll need to run "vncserver -kill :1" (or 2, or 3, etc.). Of course, once you create a password for vnc, you can run vnc in the startup init script.Mark SELECT * FROM management WHERE clue > 1> 0 rows returned--ThinkGeek T-Shrit RE: How to vnc from XP to Suse Linux QatQat (IS/IT--Management) 19 Mar 06 01:53 VNC is unencrypted, I suggest to use PuTTY to tunnel port 5901 an then connect to localhost:5901:x using VNC client on your windoz machine.here is what you docreate a new putty session to the linux server you want to connect to, give it a name and save it.Load it and then click on "tunnels"Add a new one, inserting 5901 as a source port and destination likeyourlinuxserver.yourdomain.com:5901where yourlinuxserver is the full name of the linux machine.(the one you find in your /etc/hosts file)If all is succesful you should be able to open a connection using PuTTY, launch VNC server if it is not started yet, then open VNC client to localhost:5901:x (where x is the display number).
