In this tutorial, we will introduce the steps to install TigerVNC Server on a remote CentOS 8 computer with GNOME desktop environment, and how to connect to it via “Remote Desktop Connection”. After installing, configuring and running TigerVNC, you will be able to connect to the server remotely from an RDP session.

TigerVNC is a high-performance, platform-independent implementation of VNC (Virtual Network Computing). VNC is a client/server application that allows users to launch and interact with graphical applications on remote computers.

Following are the steps required to install TigerVNC on CentOS 8 server:

1. Update your server:

sudo dnf update

2. Use the following command to install the gnome GUI component:

sudo dnf groupinstall -y "Server with GUI"

3. Set the default terget to GUI:

sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target
sudo systemctl default

After installing the graphical user interface, the next step is to install the xrdp component to enable RDP access to the server:

4. Add the xrdp repository to your server:

sudo rpm -Uvh http://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el7/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-1.el7.nux.noarch.rpm

5. Install TigerVNC server:

sudo dnf install -y xrdp tigervnc-server

6. Configure SELinux to allow rdp connection:

sudo chcon --type=bin_t /usr/sbin/xrdp
sudo chcon --type=bin_t /usr/sbin/xrdp-sesman

7. Start and enable the xrdp service:

sudo systemctl start xrdp
sudo systemctl enable xrdp

8. Configure the firewall to allow RDP:

sudo firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=3389/tcp
sudo firewall-cmd --reload

Connect to the server using RDP client

The next stage describes how to access the server configured using the RDP client.

The RDP client is pre-installed in the Windows operating system. To access it, search for “Remote Desktop Connection”

This will open the application that allows you to connect to the remote server.

Enter the IP address and username of the remote server, and then connect. A warning about the identity of the remote server will appear, prompting you to click “Yes”.

You will be prompted to enter the user’s password:How to set up TigerVNC server on CentOS 8 in Rent
