VNC ( Virtual Network Computing )

Installing the required packages

Make sure to install a window manager in order to get a normal GUI desktop.

yum groupinstall “GNOME Desktop Environment”

to install the Gnome Desktop and requirements, for example.

The server package is called ‘vnc-server’. Run the command

rpm -q vnc-server

VNC is used to display an X windows session running on another computer. Unlike a remote X connection, the xserver is running on the remote computer, not on your local workstation. Your workstation ( Linux or Windows ) is only displaying a copy of the display ( real or virtual ) that is running on the remote machine.

If the server is not installed, install it with the command:

yum install vnc-server.

The client program is ‘vnc’. You can use the command

yum install vnc
