Browse - Computer Tips - Old - How can I VNC to a headless Fedora box?
Warning: This didn't work in the end so I switched to X11
Q. How can I VNC to a headless Fedora box?
A. I installed tigervnc-server but then then when I
VNCed in I could not get past the login screen - seemed
like the <enter> key was being pressed.
I used a variant of the instructions here:
dnf install xorg-x11-drv-dummy
This is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf that worked:
Option "NoDDC" "true"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"
I did't mention anything about resolution.
When I rebooted, VNCed to myhost:10 I entered the VNC password and
withOUT the user login screen entered a Gnome session.
I used auto-scaleing in UltraVNC for Windows.
Oops, this only works after a fresh reboot. So after a boot I
when into Settings > Privacy and disabled the lock screen.
Not sure what to do for the odd times when I want to plugin
a monitor and mouse.
