26.4. VNC and X11 Parameters

The following parameters can be defined in a parameter file but do not work in a CMS configuration file. With these parameters you control what interface will be used for anaconda.
To use an X11 user interface without X11 forwarding, specify the following X11 parameter:
display=IP/hostname:display
Sets the hostname or IP address and the X11 display where the installer should connect to and display its graphical user interface.
To use a VNC server instead of an X11 user interface, specify the following VNC parameters:
vnc
Specify vnc to use the VNC graphical user interface later in the installation process.
vncpassword=
This parameter sets the password used to connect to the VNC server. The password parameter is optional. If not used, the VNC server does not use a password and anybody can connect to the VNC server.
vncconnect=IP/hostname[:port]
When used in addition to vnc and vncpassword=, this optional parameter specifies the hostname or IP address (and optionally, a TCP port) where a VNC client is running in listening mode. The installer connects to and displays its graphical user interface on this VNC client.
