Virtual Network Computing
TightVNC is a free remote control software package derived from the popular VNC software. With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just like you would do it sitting in the front of that computer.
To access a bundle of PCs from my so-called lab. It is GPL, so don't have to worry about those licensing. First of all, distance does matter, 2nd it is cost(keyboard, mouse and monitor)less.
First of all, you have to have the remote PCs in your network, where you can access LANly (the better) or WANly (never try it). At least you can ping them.
At Linux it is pre-installed if you are using Fedora 2 and above, not sure the others. At Solaris you have to install but tightvnc charge you the download access. Any Window based operating system will do.
At Linux open terminal using non-root user, type this:
(insert any password and verify it)
Then set the remote machine by typing:
Make sure you know the IP of the remote machine
Now set your local machine:
You will be prompted to fill the IP address of the machine you want to remote control. Sometimes you have to add the :x after the IP address. The x is stated at the remote machine (when you type vncserver, it will state the :x)
You will be prompted to fill the password. Then ooo-la-la, you are controlling the remote machine. Selamat mencuba.
