I guess you have vnc.
I will use as the servers ip address.

on the server run this...


you will need to set a password the first time you run it, after that it will not need to be entered again.

-- Unsecure method, for private network use.

Connect using vncviewer like this...

-- Secure method

Setup ssh to forward to local port 5900 on the windows ssh client.

Establish the ssh connection.

Connect using vncviewer like this...

what are you using for a client?
The instructions above are for vnc.
If you don't have vncviewer you cannot follow the instructions.


example of vnc..
I click on an icon that says VNC viewer in windows
A window pops up and asks for the VNC server
I type in or localhost:5900 for secure mode and press the ok button.

A window pops up and asks for my password.
When I enter the password a window opens with my desktop on it.

yes, it is in Redhat if you installed it from the cdroms

the commands are


It can also be set to start the server on boot through the init scripts but I would not recommend doing it if it's on the internet. I start it when I am going to use it over an ssh connection.
