Start VNC Server - bwUniCluster
Start a VNC Server on the bwUniCluster
To start a VNC Server on the bwUniCluster you must log into the cluster with your username and password as usual. You should not start the server on a login node but request an interactive job using for example the following command.
$ msub -v HOME,TERM,USER,DISPLAY -S /bin/bash -I -l nodes=1:ppn=1 -l walltime=0:02:00:00
On your assigned compute node start the VNC server with
$ 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.
