Any LiveCD with VNC server by default?


Hi to all.

I am searching for any kind of Linux distro which I can connect to it via VNC on the first boot.

I have seen with Ubuntu, Mint or Debian you can customize the iso, but I only have a Windows at the moment, so it should be something ready to be downloaded.

Thanks

It has been a while since I checked it out, but I believe KNOPPIX includes both VNC servers and clients. I am not sure if you can connect TO it before you set up the security on it though. Why not check it out and let us know?

Wonder if remmina has it? Anyway there are other programs that may be installed that can access vnc.

However I'd assume above is correct. Knoppix used to have a ton of programs by default.

It seems knoppix have it installed but it is not active by default. I assume it's normal due it's an important security flaw, but I was hoping someone had thought of having the possibility to edit a text file on the iso to allow this.

Anyway I thought about another option. I could use a VM on windows to edit one of the Debian, Ubuntu o Mint images through their specifically designed software. I don't know if I will be able to setup a VNC server through this, but it worth a try.

So my questions now are:

Any suggestion for a VM for windows where to run a Debian-base-syatem image?

Any idea about the possibility to setup VNC server and wpa_supplocant through those cooking iso software?

Some virtualization engines have options to provide a VNC or RDP interface into the virtual guests. VirtualBox did the last time I used it. (Warning, that was some months ago.)

If you need a live-CD image with it enabled, making your own using a suitable respin engine (using a base of puppy or fedora, for example) might be the way to go.

I would try Virtualbox and Ubuntu to start.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization

I don't know the ultimate goal. A minor problem and assumption is that you do not know the IP address of the system. Unless you have access to the PC or the DHCP server to find the info you will not be able to connect. If you are trying to connect remotely outside the LAN then you need to be able to forward the address/port in the router.

Is running a knoppix live USB with persistent not possible?
