    Enable desktop sharing from terminal?

    Hello,

    I have a remote Ubuntu PC that I need desktop sharing enabled on and on from the logon screen, can this be done from SSH as I can access it this way?

    Thanks

    There are several ways to access a remote machine. You can choose from a command-line remote access, using OpenSSH on the server and use ssh command on the client, or you can have a graphical remote access using software like Team Viewer.

    Take a look at this post for secure ssh transmission viewing the login screen.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.

    I do this via

    Code:
    ssh -R 5901:localhost:5900 my.server.com
    then on my.server.com

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install x11vnc
    x11vnc

    then from client machine open remote desktop and VNC to localhost
