I’m trying to setup a vnc server on my dietpi so that I may look over an employees shoulder to provide remote assistance. I’ve tried installing both vnc4server and tightvnc and both are not working in that I can install them and they ask for me to setup a new password, but after the install and reboot of dietpi I am not able to remote into my dietpi using my vnc client on another computer in our network.
Has others had problems setting up remote assistance (from within the same network…not from outside) using a vnc server on dietpi?
How can I tell if the vnc server is running at start on my dietpi?
My apologies…I missed that part about when using the desktop I can’t use vncserver.
Yes I am booting into an LXDE desktop and what I was hoping was to be able to provide ‘over the shoulder’ assistance to users by connecting to their 192.168.0.123:0 session so I could see exactly what they see. Is there a way to configure dietpi myself so that I may have this ability? Being able to connect to a 192.168.0.123:1 session won’t help me.
Thank you for creating a ticket for this question. Much appreciated!
Seriously…this is amazing! Thanks Fourdee…I appreciate all your hard work you put into this.
Question for you about vnc viewing console session…is this persistent across reboots or will I need to enable something after a reboot before I can connect to the users console over vnc to assist them? I just want to ensure I know the steps I’ll need to take to provide assistance if I’m called.
