Real VNC & Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry PI supports multiple operating system distributions. The default used is often Raspbian, which has a VNC-similar server installed called Real VNC.

Real VNC is not enabled by default. It also uses a proprietary authentication scheme by default.

To enable VNC on your Raspberry Pi and access via Agilicus Any-X, you may use the option panel, changing the Authentication from “Unix password” to “VNC password”. Or, if you prefer, you may edit the text files as below.

  1. Add Authentication=VncAuth to /root/.vnc/config.d/vncserver-x11
# cat /root/.vnc/config.d/vncserver-x11
_AnlLastConnTime=int64:0000000000000000
_LastUpdateCheckSuccessTime=int64:01d8f9c1abad5c0a
_LastUpdateCheckTime=int64:01d8f9c1abad5c0a
Authentication=VncAuth
Password=d00971cd8cacb99e
ViewOnlyPassword=d00971cd8cacb99e

2. set a VNC password (optionally read-only)

$ vncpasswd -service
Password:
Verify:

Now enable/restart the vnc service:

systemctl enable vncserver-x11-serviced
systemctl restart vncserver-x11-serviced

Encryption

The Real VNC Server supports a super-set of the Encryption supported by Agilicus AnyX. You may need to set “Prefer On” to allow the two sides to negotiate.
