Dear All,

I am using VNC client (windows) to connect to centos server. Please let me know how can I encrypt VNC connection to the server connecting as root to make sure security. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Regards,
Xaeem

Set up an SSH tunnel from your workstation to the server and connect VNC over SSH tunnel.
