 AN!Wiki :: How To :: VNC over SSH - m3

Server setup:

yum install tigervnc-server
cp /lib/systemd/system/vncserver@.service /etc/systemd/system/vncserver@:2.service

Replace '<USR>' with admin:

ExecStart=/usr/bin/vncserver_wrapper admin %i

Create password for vnc authentication:

su admin
vncpasswd (enter passwords)

Return to root user:

systemctl enable --now vncserver@:2.service


ssh -L 5902:localhost:5902 -N -f -l $user $host_name

The port 5901 is usually already in use, so we default to 5902 in this guide.

To connect, start tigervnc and connect to localhost:2 (or :1, if using 5901).
