Start a VNC Server on the bwForCluster Chemistry

To start a VNC Server on the bwForCluster Chemistry (Justus) you must log into the cluster with your username and password as usual. You have to start the VNC server on a login node because there is no desktop environment on the compute nodes. The commands to start the server are as follows

$ module load vis/tigervnc
$ run_vncserver

If you start a VNC server for the first time you will be asked to set a password which will be required for clients trying to access your VNC desktop. Use a strong password because otherwise an attacker could take control of your VNC session.
