How to install VNC server on CentOS 6

Lazy Geek -:)

VNC is a protocol that is used to share the desktop with other users/computers over the network/Internet.In order to share a desktop, VNC server must be install and configure on the computer and VNC client must be run on the computer that will access the shared desktop.

When we install the minimal copy of CentOS Server, it only gives us the “Command Line” interface.

But some people prefer GUI instead and for this they install Full version of Gnome on CentOS. Actually there is a better way and that is to install VNC. VNC provides a lightweight virtual desktop than full blown version of Gnome.

To run the VNC Server on CentOS, we have to install these required packages:

sudo yum groupinstall Desktop

sudo yum install tigervnc-server

sudo yum install xorg-x11-fonts-Type1

This is optional:

sudo yum install vnc

To start VNC Server on boot

sudo chkconfig vncserver on

To setup users’ VNC password:

vncpasswd
