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

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

$ vncpasswd -service

Now enable/restart the vnc service:

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


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.
