CentOS - TightVNC without SSH tunnel?

CentOS - TightVNC without SSH tunnel?

plumbergplumberg Member

I have a local computer running centos 6.5 with the Gnome desktop. I installed tightvncserver. I can connect to the desktop only via doing an SSH tunnel (following http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/VNC-Server). Is there any way to see the remote server screen without SSH tunnel... directly from tightvnc viewer?

    Open the port in your router?

  • VNC Ports start from TCP port 5900 onwards. ie: VNC Display 0 is TCP port 5900. VNC Display 2 is TCP port 5902, etc.

    Ensure you can get to those ports on your server from your VNC client IP address.

  • I dont have any blocks on my router. I can connect via the tunnel. I will try adding an explicit rule to allow VNC ports as allow and see.

    Does your home computer connects directly to the internet?

  • Do not use "-localhost -nolisten tcp" in the arg?

  • Yeah, thats not in argument.
