Pinned topic How to setup VNC server on RHEL 6.2 on Power ?

‏2012-02-28T10:05:03Z |
Hello, 
 
I would like to set up VNC Server on my fresh install RHEL 6.2 on POWER7, but I can't find out the rpm. 
I am also puzzled that it's not installed by default.
 
Please advise on how to get the VNC desktop ! 
 
Thibaud.

    On our systems here, we're setup for local yum repos, and the firewalls are disabled (lab systems).     But on a fresh install of RHEL 6.2, here's the two commands I used to enable VNC
     
    # yum install tigervnc-server 
    # vncserver 
     
    (not sure it makes a difference, I installed the tigervnc package first, but since that didn't give me what I needed, I added the tigervnc-server package)

    Right.   tigervnc will be just the client parts, (vncviewer).
    Similar scenario for generically named 'vnc' package on rhel5.7.
    The tightvnc-* package (available on Suse) contains both client and server parts.

     thank you Bill,
     
    I installed it from the RHEL 6.2 DVD iso in my virtual library on my VIOS. 
     
    BTW, I had to update iptables configuration to allow ports for VNC communications with remote VNC viewer.
     
    I'm all set now !
