Remote control of desktop applications

Remote control of desktop applications

The Manycore Testing Lab supportsRealVNC (http://www.realvnc.com), a way to interact with applications across a network.

Here are the steps that must be performed to run VNC successfully:

Log-in into theManycoreTesting Laband the first time execute: vncserver it should generate output:
New 'acano01:x (username)'desktop is acano01:x

Notes:

Each time someone runs vncserver the display id (x), will increment, note it's value.

You canterminatethevncserver with: vncserver kill :x

Vncserver shouldpersist between your logins, but not between reboots.

To use the VNC client, you must first configureyour terminal communication software for the VNC tunnel.

For example withPutty:

Putty -> Configuation -> SSH -> Tunnels

Source Port: 5590x (change x to the value reported by vncserver display idabove)

Destination: acano01:590x (change x to the value reported by vncserver display idabove)

Hit Add and then Save the this new profile

For example withF-Secure:

F-Secure -> Profiles -> Edit Profiles -> Local Forwardings -> Add

Source Port: 5590x (change x to the value reported by vncserver display idabove)

Destination: acano01

Destination Port: 950x (change x to the value reported by vncserver display idabove)

Save this new profile

Before you can run the VNC client, it will be necessary to invoke and successfully log on to the Manycore Testing Lab via your terminal connection software (to establish the VNC tunnel).

You should nowbe able to now run the VNC client (can download from): http://www.realvnc.com/products/free/4.1/download.html

Enterthe Server address:127.0.0.1:5590x (change x to the value reported by vncserver display idabove) andenter yourManycore Testing labpassword for access.
