easy vnc method installation
alright, in ubuntu forums, there was a howto that showed how to use vnc the easy way. Basically the person installed apache and installed tightvnc java viewer. Then extracted those /var/www/. Then the guy enabled remote control on ubuntu setup. Then he went back to index.html and edited something out. I can't remember what the guy put.

Now apparantely ubuntu forums is down every time I access it so I can't access the howto. I tried the google cache as well but it didn't work. Please help. Thanks.

Might try the way back machine at
It is slow but you might get to what you want.

yeah it doesn't work. I guess it doesn't work with php files. Alright, there was another program on ubuntu that you could setup. It was called something like xmdmp or something. I know it started with an x. It was basically a vnc daemon as well. I don't remember the program name. Does anyone else know?

also take a look at and find the remotedesktop section.

Ubuntu's built in Remote Desktop feature is VNC. For a quick and easy secure connection I pump the VNC port through SSH.
