December 18Hits:1

The only monitor I have is one of those crt huge dinosaurs. I want to access my ubuntu machine from my windows laptop. I have tried a few VNC programs already and I cant get it to work. Any tips?

Or is there a way I can control my Ubuntu machine from my laptop physically, like using a cord or something like that?

Answers

If you have configure vnc, remote desktop perfectly then make sure that it is allowed via firewall.

Check your router configuration , make sure that RDP is allowed.

This tutorial is as about straight forward as they get. Follow this guide HERE

Its a few years old but the principle still applies.

I am going to recommend you just use a X server on your windows box and connect using it. This post should work for you. Keep in mind that a lot of things in Linux are client server, including the GUI. So your Linux box can do all the work and your windows box can just be a dumb terminal.

I have had pretty good luck with xming in the past.

If you're connected to internet then you can use Chrome Remote Desktop Plugin. Its simple and easy to use and will work cross platform.

Remote desktop from Windows to Ubuntu

vnc4server -geometry 1024x768 -depth 24
New 'kvmsrv1:7 (root)' desktop is kvmsrv1:7
Starting applications specified in /root/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /root/.vnc/kvmsrv1:7.log
kvmsrv1:7

Use this instead of IP. If you set up a password, then give that password. Otherwise, create a password using vnc4passwd.
