I've never used a VNC or any remote login programme before So I'm trying to use TigerVNC. However, I'm open to suggestions, I'm happy to try any VNC programme, I just want to get something working. I've also vaguely heard of TightVNC and X11VNC. I have no idea if these are Free and open source (which is a prerequisite) but I'm mainly interested in ease of use and simple step by step documentation, as I unfortunately only have about 20 minutes a day/night to spend on things like this.
I have set up two MX 19.3 (i.e. debian based) computers and I'm trying to remotely access between them. I've installed tigervnc viewer and tiger standalone server but when I try the following commands I'm getting the following issues:
Code: Select all

Maybe try something simple first, e.g., tigervncserver -xstartup /usr/bin/xterm
I really don't know what I'm doing and I have a weak grasp on the key concepts, so I probably did something wrong (like setting-up to start on boot, how SSH works, firewall, ports). I was just following a couple guides online and I probably misapplied them. One thing I found was that they weren't clear on what to do on the server and what do to on the client, there is no differentiation. I wanted an idiots guide which said something like 'okay now write down that server I.P address and type it in on your VNC viewer' etc. Does anyone have any suggestions for a novice using MX linux?
Thanks in advance, Rob
