VNC Server - bwUniCluster 2.0
Start a VNC Server on the bwUniCluster 2.0
To start a VNC Server on the bwUniCluster 2.0 you must log into the cluster with your username and password as usual. Please do not start the VNC Server on a login node but request an interactive job using for example the following command:
$ salloc -p single -n 1 -t 120 --mem=5000
Now start the VNC Server on the assigned compute node 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.
