Hi,
I want to try remote viewing and control of another system.I understand VNC is the program for this, and I have tried using it back when I used Windoze, but without ever managing to make it work.

Now I want to try again, only now I'm using BLAG 70K.

I'm hoping someone can help me get started, and maybe even work with me a bit to try this out.

Thanks,
Mike

This how to seems pretty informative.

I've never done vnc server on linux, but I'd like to give it a try at some point.

On the system you want to control, run `vino-preferences` and set the options as you like (it's in the menu somewhere too).

Then on the other system run:

Code:
vncviewer 192.168.1.50:0


where 192.168.1.50 = the IP address of the machine you want to control.

Voila!

-Jeff

Alternatively, you can use x11vnc if you have some requirements greater than what vino provides:
http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.uly ... f.i386.rpm

It's perfect for if you're doing stuff like using xinerama or want to use encryption.
