[SOLVED] Remote desktop access under CentOS 7 and KDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 6, 2015
I just upgraded from CentOS 6.6 with Gnome 2 at work to CentOS 7.1 and KDE. I'm still resolving some issues with the new environment, one of them being remote desktop access. Under CentOS 6.6/Gnome 2, I was using vino as a VNC server on my PC to allow me to get a remote desktop session from my home PC to my work PC, using TigerVNC as my remote client.
Vino doesn't appear to exist under CentOS 7/KDE. In my research I've discovered krfb as an alternative VNC server, and while this does work it's not really practical. I can't configure the server to run permanently on my system, and what's worse, when a remote connection is made, a prompt is displayed on my office PC asking if it is okay to allow the connection. Considering I'm at home, it's kind of difficult to click that OK button.
So, I hope there's a better solution. Is there a VNC server that runs under CentOS 7/KDE that can be configured to run permanently and allow remote VNC connections without a challenge response?

[SOLVED] Remote Desktop Error: Failed to Load Session Ubuntu2d
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 13, 2013
Okay so I am a noob to linux but not PCs in general so I'll get to the point here. I'm trying to connect remote desktop from a windows PC to a server (yes I noticed if you mention ms or windows you should post in general, but I'm not allowed since this is my first post). So, first here are the specs:
Dell AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics (1.65 GHz)
4 GB RAM
Windows 7 (64-bit)
Internet: Cable modem 15mbps/2.5mbps
OVH Kimsufi Intel Atom D425 1.8 GHz (512k cache)
Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 "Precise Pangolin" LTS + x2go (64-bit)
Internet: 100mbps/100mbps dedicated line
So I have been able to set the server up and I have played with it a little bit and gotten more comfortable with the commands, but now I tried to connect remote desktop and I get this:
So I tried to do a little research and my guess was gdm wasn't running. So I installed it and started the service okay, but I keep getting that same mes

Remote Desktop Access
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 20, 2011
Is there an easy guide anywhere (like Dummies level!) to get me working with remote access between two ubuntu machines? I would like to be able to connect to my other half's machine, over the internet to fix problems, much like I used to using MSN Messenger when we both had windows. I have googled repeatedly but cannot understand a simple way of doing it or how to set up VNC
Also, we tried Empathy - my 'Share My Desktop' is greyed out but when she clicks my name, it's an option but clicking it gives the message that I have rejected it, when I didn't even get asked.
Thanks in advance
Ubuntu server, multiuser remote desktop access
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 27, 2009
I am having difficulty setting up vnc on a ubuntu server so that multiple authorised users can log to establish remote desktop sessions, without anyone needing to be logged in at the console. While we can easily get remote command line access (putty / ssh), we need the graphical interface e.g. for eclipse.
An attempt to log in from Windows using RealVNC's VncViewer, connecting to port 5901, 5902, or 5903, fails with an immediate message "The connection closed unexpectedly". Attempts to connect to other unconfigured ports fail as expected with a "connection refused" error.
I did succeed in getting remote desktop access using xming, but it was far too slow to be practical. In my previous job there was the kind of setup I'm trying to get working here and it was very successful. That was under Centos 5.
I've described below what I did. I'm sorry for the verbose description, but since I'm not sure where it's going wrong, I don't know which detail to leave out. I'v
remote desktop access to "Cloud Server" at rackspace.com?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 10, 2011
I'm fairly new to Ubuntu as a desktop environment and was delighted to see System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop. I'm wondering if I might be able to use Remote Desktop functionality with a server that I instantiate using Rackspace.com's Cloud Servers product.
The basic idea is that this "Cloud Server" does not appear to be a desktop install from a CD and my guess is that it lacks all of the drivers and GUI software that Ubuntu uses to render a desktop on actual nuts-and-bolts hardware. At the very least, I will only have command-line access initially and I'm wondering if there are any Ubuntu command-line things I might to to enable remote desktop access on the Cloud Server so I can use my desktop Ubuntu system to have a GUI interface to the Cloud Server. In particular, I'm very interested in the System Monitor.
Rackspace lets you instantiate Debian, CentOS, Red Hat, Fedora, Gentoo, and other distros as well as these versions of Ubuntu:
Remote Desktop: Managing my CentOS 6 server with my laptop (need guidance)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 30, 2011
Greetings, fellow Linux users. This is my first post in what I hope will be a nice and enjoyable learning experience about the most useful operating system in existence.
For starters, I am not a completely "newbie." I know how to navigate through the ins and outs of Linux and I am not in the least intimidated by it.
Now I start with my problems:
I am trying to control a server that I recently acquired utilizing a Dell Inspiron Laptop running the Win7 64 bit. My server is a HP Proliant 380 G4.
The laptop and the server are connected to a 16 port Netgear Stackable Hub. The Hub itself is connected to a router, which is connected to a DSL modem.
Since my server is running the CentOS 6 flavor (full distribution [includes most packets]), I go to the "Remote Desktop Preferences" (Krfb) GUI application. Under "Sharing," I set both allow user to view and allow user to control Desktop. I also set the "Configure Network Automatically to Accept
