Start a VNC Server on the bwForCluster Chemistry

To start a VNC Server on the bwForCluster Chemistry you must log into the cluster using your username and password. You have to start the VNC Server on a login node because on the compute nodes no desktop environment is available. The commands to start the VNC 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.
