For what ever reason, you may want to have the gui installed on a RHEL 7.2 server, in my case I do. And for what ever reason you might want to vnc to that server so you don’t need to stand in front of the physical box. Here’s how I set it up.
First you need to install tiger-vnc-server and some fonts.
Then you’ll need to cp and edit the vnc service file
Replace the <user> in the white boxes with your username
if firewall is enabled on your server
firewall-cmd –permanent –zone=public –add-port=5903/tcp
Next stage is to set the password for the vnc user so you can login
This should be enough for the setup, you’ll need to restart and enable services now
Now is time to connect to the server from your pc using VNCViewer or Remote Desktop
BOOM We’re in 🙂
Quite easy when you know how eh 😀
