Right, You Really Need a Slax Terminal Server
If you decide that the easy way to give remote access – i.e. via krfb – isn't an option for you, then the choice you have is to set a Slax terminal server. This might sound terribly difficult but in fact it is very easy to do. Here are two options for setting up and running a Slax terminal server:
The first option is to use the tightvncserver module. You can get this module from the Modules section of the Slax site. When you open the page for the tightvncserver module, there are two ways to proceed. If you are running Slax and you are connected to the Internet, select Activate; otherwise you need to download the module and install it manually – you can do this from KDE menu → System → SLAX Module Manager.
In either case, after you have tightvncserver installed, you need to configure it. Open a shell and at the prompt type:
You will be asked for a password. Enter the password and answer any other questions you might be asked and you are done. Now, to test the connection use a VNC viewer and enter the IP (and the port on which the terminal server is running) of your computer. If you can connect, then the Slax terminal server has been successfully installed.
The second option to setup and run a Slax terminal server is to use the x11vnc module. Go to the Modules section of the Slax site and activate/download the module. Then open a console and type:
This is enough to run the terminal server but since you will be running it without a password, you'd better run:
This will prompt you for a password and it will be stored in a default location. If you want to specify an alternative location, you need to specify the path. Later, when you want to run x11vnc and make it require the password, type:
If you are not happy with the unencrypted traffic you will get by default with x11vnc, consider tunneling or use the -ssl or -stunnel options.
When done, open a terminal client, enter your IP and port and see if you can connect. If you can, congratulations! You have successfully installed the x11vnc terminal server for Slax.
