View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to connect to ubunto 9.04 remotely (via VNC)

October 29th, 2009, 09:51 PM

I'm using UBUNTU 9.04.
From System-> Preferences I enabled Remote desktop in order to connect to the ubuntu box from another PC.
I'm able to connect using VNC viewer, but ONLY after I login on ubuntu box .
I'd like to be able to connect from another PC to the ubuntu box even when there is no
user currently logged on to the ubuntu box.

1. Which version of VNC is installed by default on the ubuntu 9.04?
2. Is it running as a separate service or it is part of another service? I do not see any vnc* entries i the list of services when i do rcconf.
3. How do I make it start automatically at boot ? (so I do not have to logon to the
ubunto box first)

Thank you!
