Is there any way to remote just a software from a VPS?

Is there any way or technology to use a specific application of a VPS via remote, without the entire interface of the operating system?

In other words, use the browser ONLY?

    you can download WinSCP client to log in to VPS.
    and also login via VNC.
    or using RDP via the browser.

    Congrats on your first post

    I thought that you wanted to offer a tutorial

    "Linux will run happily with only 4 MB of RAM, including all of the bells and whistles such as the X Window System, Emacs, and so on." (M. Welsh & L. Kaufman, Running Linux, 2e, 1996, p. 32)

  • Sounds like you want something like Citrix or Horizon to me..

    ssh -X

    For Windows you can use Microsoft Remote Desktop Service

    Published application where he can run remotely.

    why not to google for tutorial how to manage VPS?

    All software you will be able to remove using the following command , just beware that after your VPS will be unusable:

    on Redhat/CentOS based:
    yum remove "name of software"
    or remove all:
    yum remove *

    on Debian based:
    apt-get remove "name of software"
    or remove all:
    apt-get remove *

    He’s enquiring about using applications remotely, not removing them 🙄

    yes

    use x2go

    this is the wiki

    https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/wiki:advanced:published-applications

    and this is how:

    https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:installation:x2goserver

    and being a user of this feature for over several years. Yeah if your pings are below or around 50ms to the server from your client, you can use the remote application on your own client desktop with minimum problems.

    This works over a browser after you set it up, maybe you're looking for something like this?

    Yes. But your lack of application specificity makes your request so ambiguous, you won't get useful help. But I suspect you won't be back.

    I think you can do that using all technologies.

    In VNC you just edit the startup script.
    Same goes about Nomachine NX, you'll just need to edit a conf file.
    It's also possible using XPRA .
    And of course SSH X forwarding .

    Beware when a remote program is running without a window manager you may have troubles controlling the window borders, resizing etc. (attempting to remotely minimize it may cause it to disappear into a black hole for example) .

    That's why I think it's better to start an X terminal first then run your program from there . So you'll have better control.

    This guy doesn't want remote desktop. He want remote browser. Without The Desktop.

    You can use Windows Remote Desktop Services as someone mentioned before and only publish the applications you need; it does involve licensing though.

    I think he wants to use the browser from his PC, but the browser will work as working in VPS.

    ssh + dynamic port forward to create SOCKS proxy

    https://zaiste.net/posts/ssh-port-forwarding/#:~:text=Dynamic Port Forwarding allows a,client using a proxy server.

    almost any modern desktop browser support SOCKS proxy (chrome may use the desktop connection settings, but you can wire up SOCKS proxy when launching chrome from command line)

    if you don't even want to install a SSH client on your desktop, then you can try installing a http proxy on VPS and changing desktop browser to use http proxy (similar to changing SOCKS proxy above).

    note issues about security + leakage (eg DNS leakage) in both SOCKS and HTTP proxy

  • Guacamole?
    It can be configured to only run a specific application and is usable from a web browser.

  • Alright, no one else reply, fuck this guy who made a shitty post and then never came back to LET.
