remote control with x2goserver

Post by alessandro.psrt »

In addition to the options offered by dietpi-software for remote control, I feel very comfortable with x2go. It offers excellent performance as NoMachine but I find it more suitable for servers with few resources.

Server side

Code: Select all

apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keys.gnupg.net E1F958385BFE2B6E
nano /etc/apt/sources.list
Paste into

Code: Select all

# X2Go Repository (release builds)
deb http://packages.x2go.org/raspbian jessie main
# X2Go Repository (sources of release builds)
deb-src http://packages.x2go.org/raspbian jessie main
Install x2goserver

Code: Select all

apt-get update
apt-get install x2goserver
Client side

Code: Select all

apt-get install x2goclient
For other distros http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:insta ... x2goclient
If needed generate ssh keys

Code: Select all

ssh-keygen
Install keys on server Open client and create connection with address, session manager, credential and keys and any other option you need.

x2go can't work with new version of gnome-shell and plasma so you need lxde or mate.

In connections with upload at 0.66Mb/s, instead of vnc servers x2go works very well!
