Puppy Linux Discussion Forum :: View topic – x11vnc server and tightvnc viewer packages for Dingo

Here’s a couple of pet packages compiled in Puppy 4 Dingo.

X11vnc is a remote desktop server which allows one to view remotely and interact with real X displays (i.e. a display corresponding to a physical monitor, keyboard, and mouse) with any VNC viewer. In this way it plays the role for Unix/X11 that WinVNC plays for Windows.

Tightvnc viewer is used for connecting to a computer running a vncserver so that you can control it remotely.

HOWTO: IPCop-OpenVPN

Linux

I’m a huge fan of IPCop. It’s a great firewall distro that makes administration a snap using a slick web interface. My goal was to use IPCop and an easy-to-use VPN client to allow access to my LAN while away from home.

I ended up going with the ZERINA OpenVPN addon for IPCop and the OpenVPN GUI for Windows.

If you’ve ever wanted full, secure, encrypted access to your LAN from any remote location, here is your guide.

Just follow these ten easy steps…

Tightvnc viewer is used for connecting to a computer running a vncserver so that you can control it remotely.

http://www.tightvnc.com/

Tightvnc also makes packages for Windows (2000/XP) so you could control a computer running Puppy from Windows or vise versa. The Tightvnc viewer pet package also includes libXp.so.6.2.0 which is part of Xorg.

I have a computer attached to my TV that I use for watching youtube and hulu videos. So with x11vnc I can use my laptop as a big remote control.

After installing the package and restarting JWM, you should find them under Menu – Network. Click the Help button in the x11vnc-gui for more information.

Stompbox – Howto #4 – Config and Customize « Anton\’s Stuff

I won’t get into how to configure openvpn at this time as there are a lot of good howtos on the net. Getting it installed on the stompbox took a little work but ultimately I used apt-get to install openvpn after finding a deb of one of the dependencies on the web. I’ll try sometime to reproduce my steps if anyone else is interested in how to make it work.

7.1 Telnet

Telnet is a program that allows a person to use a remote computer as if that person were actually at the remote site. Telnet is one of the most powerful tools for Unix, allowing for true remote administration. It is also an interesting program from the point of view of users, because it allows remote access to all their files and programs from anywhere in the Internet. Combined with an X server, there is no difference (apart from the delay) between being at the console or on the other side of the planet. Telnet daemons and clients are available with most Linux distributions.

HOWTO – Linux VNCserver

You will need several things to get started:

root privledges

VNC client software (tightVNC, you can download it here.)

A good password!

As I mentioned above, this example is done with RHEL, which comes standard with VNCserver installed. To start the vncserver simply invoke the following commands:

[root@roswell etc]# service vncserver start

Starting VNC server: [ OK ]

[root@roswell etc]#

[root@roswell etc]# vncpasswd
