I understand the I can use VNC protocol for remote viewing.

There is a mac on my network which has VNC enabled. I have downloaded TigerVNC

dnf install tigervnc

I get the IP address of host I want to view

host hostName

And then type userName@hostIpAddress into the field in the screen shot and press connect but I'm not able to connect.

enter image description here when I press connect I get message

unable to resolve host by name: Name or service not known.


I was able to do it from the command terminal. I go to the directory the app is installed in

cd /usr/share/applications

and then I just can just remove view the using the host name, no need for a user name... just type this into the terminal

vncviewer hostName

and then I just sign into the user account I want
