Notes:

  1. Enable X11 forwarding to allow remote display of GUI-based apps.
  2. Tunnels L590x are for (Tight)VNC's use.

  3. Tunnel L8099 was associated with raspiblack's MoinMoin-based Wiki1.

TightVNC Usage

(adapted from this tutorial)

Login to the Pi via PuTTY with settings as above.

Having installed tightvnc etc. run this on the Pi:

pi@raspiblack ~ $ /usr/bin/tightvncserver -localhost :1

New 'X' desktop is raspiblack:1

Starting applications specified in /home/pi/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/pi/.vnc/raspiblack:1.log

Having istalled the tightvnc client (or similar) on your other computer (could be another Pi) run this:

trevor@BlueElf:~$  /usr/bin/xtightvncviewer localhost:1
Connected to RFB server, using protocol version 3.8
Enabling TightVNC protocol extensions
Performing standard VNC authentication
Password: 
Authentication successful
Desktop name "pi's X desktop (raspiblack:1)"
VNC server default format:
  32 bits per pixel.
  Least significant byte first in each pixel.
  True colour: max red 255 green 255 blue 255, shift red 16 green 8 blue 0
Using default colormap which is TrueColor.  Pixel format:
  32 bits per pixel.
  Least significant byte first in each pixel.
  True colour: max red 255 green 255 blue 255, shift red 16 green 8 blue 0
Using shared memory PutImage
Same machine: preferring raw encoding

(The first time you run the server on the Pi you will be prompted to setup the password asked for above)

You should get something like this screenshot:

Use "Ctrl-C" (^C) to exit the client on your other (Linux) computer:

^CCleanupSignalHandler called
ShmCleanup called

To "kill" the server on the Pi:

pi@raspiblack ~ $ /usr/bin/tightvncserver -kill :1
Killing Xtightvnc process ID 2321
