Remote access to Centos 7

Post by Modulopi » 2018/08/10 13:27:11

Hello,

I want to remotely have access from my Laptop (windows 10) to my desktop (CentOS 7).
I have tried VNC and even a protocol that give me access to my desktop thought "Remote Desktop Connection" from windows.

But I do want to have the same desktop in my laptop that it is in my desktop. The 2 previous method gave me access to my desktop, but I cannot have access to the open programs.
For example, I do want to be able if something is running (started from my desktop) , and modify it from my laptop.
When my desktop was running on windows, I could easily do it with the Remote Desktop Connection, but now I am stuck because I cannot do it.

I was looking on the web but got no luck, if someone could help me that would be great.

If it is not possible, that will be good to be able to remotely control a program running on Centos (knowing his PID).

Thanks for you help.

Regards

Do you have EPEL repo configured? I think it has x2go* packages.

A more simple approach is to use always the vnc.
For example you login on your desktop and then open a VNC session to localhost.

Hi,
thank you for your answer.
I will have a look to the x2go package, then if it doesn't work like I wanted, how can I open a vnc session to localhost(on my desktop), and do you have a robust VNC viewer software for windows 10 ?

I am also kind of surprise that there is no native package on centos to do this kind of stuff.

Thanks.

On CentOS 7 you can:

Code: Select all

yum install tigervnc
On windows 10 you can find tigervnc on : https://github.com/TigerVNC/tigervnc/releases -> Binaries are available from bintray -> tigervnc64-1.9.0.exe

Thanks, I already have installed tigervnc on the centos desktop.
But how I create a vnc session on the desktop ? Then when I connect with VNC on the laptop I will find all the apps and program opened when I left my desktop ?

Thanks a lot.
