VNC Server Fedora 8


I installed Fedora 8 and I want to be able to access it through VNC Server from a remote Windows machine. How do I configure Vnc server on Fedora 8?

Well I got vncserver installed but it is not doing exactly what I want it to. I want to be able to access my desktop from home but I don't want it to unlock the local desktop session while I am doing it. Anyone have a clue how to access Fedora desktop from remote without it unlocking locally?

Fortunately I found a document that explained the install and I just had to edit the configuration files to get Vnc working.

Browse to systems -> Preferences ->Remote Desktop.
Tick "required the user to enter this password". fill in the password.

When user want to remotely access, type "vnc", and then key in the server's computer (for example, server OR 192.168.2.3); you should able to sign in with correct password.
