I tried installing TigerVNC yesterday on to a server. I am setting it up for a customer to where I will have a secure VPN to it and I can remote into it and then get remote access into there servers behind a firewall for remote support.
It has been years since I have installed TigerVNC (probably since CenOS 6.5)
I just could not get it working. I followed several how to’s and tried everything for hours.
I could get it to work one time after reboot. It would give me logins for something about a repository, and I could cancel it. But then when I logged of the service went inactive until I restarted the box again.
I went ahead and setup xrdp, and that works really well.
Is xrdp secure? Is TigerVNC kind of dying off? Is anyone else using it? Is xrdp the latest thing?
What other remote access options do you use. I am administering Windows Boxes on the other end that have VNC installed on them. And I can get the VNC client to work fine, just not the server.
