I have 2 dual processor linux servers running, and am looking to get a 3rd to run Oracle databases. I am frequently away and need to access them remotely. Command line is easy as I sue Penguinet, however, with Oracle, I frequently need to access the GUI frontend/xwindows to run java based programs - installer, etc.
I tried installing TightVNC/VNC Viewer, but the interface is pretty hokey I found...
Can anyone recommend other software for GUI desktop emulation?
How do I run the application using the xwindows protocol? I tried to run the Oracle Installer from PenguiNet terminal emulator after I set the xwindows paramteres, and it errored telling me it was unable to display the gui front end...
I think I tried this before with the terminal emulator, and the emulator was not able to handle the GUI images. Any thoughts on how I should connect to the remote server to have the GUI enabled? I am accessing the server from my Win XP laptop across the internet, and am getting to the server in question by attaching to another server first using SSH:22, then using the command line to attach to the ultimate server using ssh -Xl username servername.
