RHEL includes VNC for sharing a local display.


To enable VNC services:


- checkconfig vncserver on

- vi /etc/sysconfig/vncservers (add number of displays, configuration and user information)

- vncpasswd (set passwd for VNC access)

- check firewall config (VNC client TCP 590x or Web client TCP 580x)

- service vncserver start


VNC clients are available for Windows and Linux, but only the RHEL client are included.

Note: VNC traffic is not encrypted
