VNC Server installation on OpenSuse 13.2


This guide explains how to configure VNC server

in OpenSuse 13.2. VNC is a very convinient way of administrating the OpenSuse desktops remotely. The GUI can be accessed from anywhere over the internet or local network with a VNC client on any OS. The only requirement is that the connecting OS has a VNC-client installed on it.

1 Preliminary Note

I have fresh installed OpenSuse 13.2 Desktop installed with KDE-desktop on which I am going to install VNC-server and configure to make it available for remote connections.  My OpenSuse 13.2 desktop have hostname desktop1.example.com & IP as 192.168.0.100

VNC-server benefits:

  • Remote GUI administration makes work easy & convenient.
  • Clipboard sharing between host Ubuntu server & VNC-client machine.
  • GUI tools can be installed on the host Ubuntu server to make the administration more powerful
  • Host Ubuntu server can be administered through any OS having the VNC-client installed.
  • More reliable and faster then running a X-Server over SSH.
  • More reliable then RDP connections.
