[SOLVED] Remote usage

October 11Hits:0
Advertisement
I'm kind of used to VNC and TeamViewer to give support to my machines but I want to ask for something completely different.
I want to setup a headless machine and remotely (from what is usually called a dumb terminal) connect to the machine and use its window manager and everything as if i was phisically using that machine with the keyboard and mouse plugged on it, but via network..... Is this so uncommon or difficult?
Thanks.

I am using xvfb with x11vnc and ssh. I tried vncserver before but it could not handle i3 (no xkb extension or something like that).
On remote machine (under screen / tmux so it won't dissapear if i'm disconnected):
Xvfb :1 -nolisten tcp -screen 0 1280x1024x16
DISPLAY=:1 i3
x11vnc -display :1 -localhost
On local machine:
ssh -L 5900:localhost:5900
(or putty: connection -> ssh -> tunnels)
This gives you encrypted persistent vnc session. On reconnect you need to start x11vnc once again.
