Remote Desktop (VNC)...
 
I have Linux Mint 7 and wondering how come on my Windows it won't connect to my Linux. I am using the program RealVNC Viewer. So I was seeing if someone can give me a step by step of how to do that? I am new so thank you for your help.

Not for Mint http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/VNC-Server

Okay, What is a good OS for my windows can connect to my Linux?

Sorry - the link I gave you was for setting it up under CentOS. I meant the link was not a howto for Mint, not that you couldn't use Mint.

I would expect that the howto should be pretty much straight applicable to Mint.

Sorry about the confusion

So if I use that link I can get my VNC working in Mint 7?

You could try it for a start.

sparky_phantom 06-01-2009 10:43 PM

The "Yum" command doesn't work for me.

billymayday 06-01-2009 10:50 PM

No, you would use apt-get or similar.

sparky_phantom 06-01-2009 10:52 PM

Sorry I am really new to this and I can't get either one to do anything.

I guess kind of helped, but still can't connect to my Linux through Windows.

billymayday 06-01-2009 11:17 PM

You're going to have to give way more information than that if you want any help.

Okay lets see. I am using Linux Mint 7. I want to have my Windows Vista connect to my Linux via VNC. On my Windows Vista I have RealVNC installed. When I try to connect using RealVNC I get an error saying can't connect. I have opened all the ports I need on my 2WIRE router. I want to control my Linux on my Windows. When I use the Terminal it says it can't install VCN-Server. I believe I need that program in order to connect from my Windows to my Linux. I can't for some reason. I want to know how I can.

billymayday 06-01-2009 11:26 PM

Do you have vino installed (as per the 2nd link I gave you)?

sparky_phantom 06-01-2009 11:31 PM

I believe so. I have a Remote Desktop program that I am guessing is it.
