What is TightVNC : How to use it !!

What is TightVNC?

TightVNC is a free remote control software package. With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer. TightVNC is:
  • free for both personal and commercial usage, with full source code available,
  • useful in administration, tech support, education, and for many other purposes,
  • cross-platform, available for Windows and Unix, with Java client included,
  • compatible with standard VNC software, conforming to RFB protocol specifications.
With TightVNC, you can:
  • cut your expenses and save your time on traveling,
  • help your friends and family to solve problems with their computers remotely,
  • make sure nothing wrong is happening on your computers when you are away.

Ubuntu TightVNC Server

This guide intends to show you how to build a headless server with tightvnc, such that you can remotely access the server’s gui using any vnc client.  I’m still working on it, so if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to let me know.
sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
Then create and edit: /etc/init.d/vncserver in your favorite text editor. Copy and base the contents between the ——, then modify the variables up top as necessary.
#!/bin/sh -e
# Provides: vncserver
# Required-Start: networking
# Default-Start: S
# Default-Stop: 0 6
# The Username:Group that will run VNC
export USER=”username”
# The display that VNC will use
# Color depth (between 8 and 32)
# The Desktop geometry to use.

# The name that the VNC Desktop will have.
OPTIONS=”-name ${NAME} -depth ${DEPTH} -geometry ${GEOMETRY} :${DISPLAY}”
. /lib/lsb/init-functions
case “$1″ in
log_action_begin_msg “Starting vncserver for user ‘${USER}’ on localhost:${DISPLAY}”
su ${USER} -c “/usr/bin/vncserver ${OPTIONS}”
log_action_begin_msg “Stoping vncserver for user ‘${USER}’ on localhost:${DISPLAY}”
su ${USER} -c “/usr/bin/vncserver -kill :${DISPLAY}”
echo “need to implement”
exit 0
Save the file and make sure the permissions are as follows:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root
Update your rc.d by running:
update-rc.d vncserver defaults
Reboot and you should be good to go.
