You can then connect to it again, and everything is still running like you left it. This is a very cool feature. I use this on a Sparc5, Ultra 5 and Blade All rights reserved. Hi, I am not using the one from sunfreeware.
The package name is SFWvnc. In your case you might be missing a library, check with ldd on x11vnc binary. Another goal is to provide a package that conveniently bundles everything needed for the user to have the enhanced viewer running quickly. This includes pre-built binaries of the viewer and utility programs for Windows and many Unix variants, and a GUI to configure and launch the viewer. Changes: Using port numbers lower than VNC's default port now works on Windows for example, myhost. Author: Karl Runge [contact developer].
It provides a native VNC viewer that takes advantage of new features in x11vnc, e. Some features apply to any VNC server, e. Machine AA is the display server , i. Machine BB is the application server , i. Please do NOT use display nr. In some special cases for instance if you are running more then one vnc server there is a conflict with the display numbering: just enter an higher number. If this is the first time that you are using vncserver then you will be asked to enter define a password.
You may want to check if the server is really running. Do it with the command:. True color: max red 7 green 7 blue 3, shift red 0 green 3 blue 6 Using default color map and translating from BGR Pixel format: 8 bits per pixel. True color: max red 7 green 7 blue 3, shift red 0 green 3 blue 6 Got 8 exact BGR colors out of Using 77 existing shared colors.
On your screen you will see a big window which represent a desktop similar to the one that you would have if you would have logged on the application server's console. In this big windows one xterm is already open and there you can start all the utilities you wish on the server. For X11 tested and OK :! I wrote x11vnc because x0rfbserver was basically impossible to build on Solaris and had poor performance. I also added a few enhancements to improve the interactive response, add esoteric features, etc.
The FAQ contains a lot of information and solutions to problems, but please feel free to contact me if you have problems or questions. VNC Virtual Network Computing is a very useful network graphics protocol applications running on one computer but displaying their windows on another in the spirit of X, however, unlike X, the viewing-end is very simple and maintains no state. It is a remote framebuffer RFB protocol. For Unix, the VNC implementation includes a virtual X11 server Xvnc usually launched via the vncserver command that is not associated with a physical display, but provides a "fake" one X11 clients xterm , mozilla , etc.
A remote user then connects to Xvnc via the VNC client vncviewer from anywhere on the network to view and interact with the whole virtual X11 desktop. The VNC protocol is in most cases better suited for remote connections with low bandwidth and high latency than is the X11 protocol the exception is cached pixmap data on the viewing-end.
Also, with no state maintained the viewing-end can crash, be rebooted, or relocated and the applications and desktop continue running. Not so with X However , sometimes one wants to connect to a real X11 display i. Maybe you want to close down an application cleanly rather than using kill , or want to work a bit in an already running application, or would like to help a distant colleague solve a problem with their desktop.
This is where x11vnc is useful. This is NOT remote desktop admin. I want to use the machine with no terminal. I have done this with various other linuxes. Sometimes it works to start vncserver in a file in rc. I have tried a whole bunch of different stuff on JDS R2 without getting it to work.
Can anybody help? Again, this is not Remote Desktop the way it ships with the system. You'll need to provide a password. You can also run the command: vncviewer and it will ask for an IP and password to get a remote desktop. It's pretty normal.
You can also create a launcher for the viewer. That approach won't solve the issue. The built-in "Remote Desktop" only allows remote access to a desktop that has already been started, and this PC has no running desktop. In an emergency, I can telnet or ssh to the machine, start vncserver by hand, and then access the machine via VNC, but that's too much trouble to do every day.
I want to start Xvnc automatically when the machine boots. The PC is without monitor, and vnc will be the only way I connect to it. I have done this with various other linuxes, I just haven't gotten it working in JDS. Sometimes it works to fire vncserver during startup in an rc file , and sometimes it works to fire Xvnc via inet as a service when it gets a connect attempt on port I've even done it with xdmcp, but none of my attempts have worked in JDSR2.
If you can get this working, let me know. To test it, turn your machine on, and let it boot to rl5 the display manager login screen. Then go to another machine, and connect to it via vnc. Don't pick it off the yast install list; I could not get the version shipped with JDS to work. I used realvnc. Download it as a tarfile. By the way, while the system is coming up, you'll see init throw a "failed" message for gdm, I don't know why.
This change is causing the failure, but everything seems to work. I'm not going to spend alot of time figuring out how to clean up whatever is reporting bad status, since it's running. The 01 means screen When the system gets a connect attempt on that port, it'll run the vnc server.
You can add -geometry and -depth if you want. You can add multiple lines here inetd. Restart init and gdm or reboot. Now, when the machine boots, and you connect via vnc, you'll get a gdm login screen. Don't do this unless your network is already completely secure.
I just downloaded the latest version of VNC. And it now works. However it doesn't bring up KDE. Yep, this is very normal. THese startup files fire up a window manager, etc Becuase the window manager or session manager are components of an X environment, and not "integrated" into the graphics subsystem. I don't know if you knew all that, but some Windows-backgrounded people don't, so I mention it for completeness. When you run "vncserver" which is a script that starts Xvnc , it looks in a sub-dir called.
Or else you can hack "vncserver" to not bother with the home directory stuff at all and just start a certain window manager which is what I do, in fact, I have it start star office with no window manager at all. Someone explain that on too me please? Solaris 10 can be downloaded from sun's web site. Also available from the download pages is an image of a "Software Companion CD". This CD contains extra freeware products which can be added post-installation.
VNC allows remote desktop access to computers over a network. Insert the Solaris Companion CD and allow the volume management daemon to mount it. There are three packages which are required. In this example they are converted into package datastreams on the hard disk:.
The :0 server is the default one which you log in to locally. In this example one extra connection is being configured:. There are only two lines in my example file, it has just word wrapped on this web page. Here are some of the important options:. This is the colour depth.
An 8bit colour depth uses less network bandwidth but looks a bit blocky. The port number for the client to connect to. Each different server must use a different port number. For example :1 uses and :2 could use You can point a web browser at the Unix host with this port number and get a java based connection to the Unix host. For example:. This would work but the fonts will not be right. That should be it! I rebooted here but I think you should be able to get away with hupping the inetd and stopping and restarting dtlogin:.
There is a bug which will prevent text being entered in terminal windows in the Java Desktop. This can be solved by modifying the file shown below:. Otherwise you'll only get a blank checkerboard screen and the oh-so-familiar X cursor. To create VNC login password, just execute vncpasswd command and enter a valid password twice as usual. By executing vncserver for the second time or execute the vncserver :2 command, this will startup VNC server that bind and listen to port , , and respectively.
To kill the VNC server, just execute vncserver -kill :1 will kill the first VNC server that bind and listen to port , , and The vncserver -kill: 2 will kill the second VNC server, and so on. I have been wanting to try VNC, but I was unwilling to go through the hassle. With your write up I will give it a try.

Join Date: Jun I'm trying to setup VNC on my sparc based server that I just installed solaris 10 on but when I type in vncserver to start it, I get "couldn't find "xauth" on your PATH" What do I do so I can get a gui up and running remotely on my xp desktop?
Thank you very much in advance! Join Date: Dec Join Date: Jul XDMCP is running by default on a full installation in solaris. Find all posts by DukeNuke2. Originally Posted by DukeNuke2.

They are all on the same ethernet switch behind the router right now. Originally Posted by QuadRunner Login or Register to Ask a Question. Autologin and vnc - Solaris Hi guys, First of all I would like to thank you for reading my post.
My question is about having autologin and VNC. I already configure VNC that works perfectly using the following procedure: 1. The issue is that every time I log into my machine and use terminal a few commands like df -h or any other command and then close VNC windows. When I log back in , Solaris and VNC. Hi Guys, I need some assistance with getting vnc viewer from an WinXP machine to be able to connect to a vncserver on Solaris. Hi, I have installed vnc software in my desktop and trying start solaris gui and all i get is a partial gui that has one window open.
Start of VNC with Solaris. Hello, We have machines running Solaris 2. A selection menu after the launch of Solaris can be selected whether the Solaris desktop or Leitsoftware to start.
