Real VNC & Raspberry Pi

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:

  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

Ad this stage you can follow the standard directions to create a VNC Desktop

  1. Resources/Desktops/New
  2. Add user permissions to new desktop
  3. Open Profile and select the desktop
