Re: Remote Desktop? HOW?

Fri Dec 27, 2013 6:36 pm

It isn't actually a remote terminal in the same sense as Windows Remote Terminal, which is really just a remote viewer on the existing single desktop.

It's a remote terminal as in another terminal, which happens to be remote. Any number of people can log in from their own computers and each will get a desktop to themself.

If you need a program to keep running while you are disconnected, I think the sessions package may be what you are looking for.

The RaspPi is very underpowered for bitmining.

Unless you do X11 forwarding with SSH and have an Xming (or other X-server) running on Windows.

No modifications needed for that. PuTTY has X11 forwarding built in, sshd can do X11 forwarding (when asked nicely). It just does what it says on the tin.

Go to www.realvnc.com. Download your appropriate VNC version.. Open the vncviewer file in the archive, and enter the details of the raspberry pi. Go into your raspberry pi and type:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
, then type

Code: Select all

tightvncserver
to start it. You will need to start it every time the pi is turned on, as other wise you wouldn't be able to use it. Then on your computer, connect to the pi.

Hey there, we just released a preview of the TeamViewer Host for Raspberry Pi and created a contest to go along with it. Check out the official homepage and feel free to use the topic here in the forum to discuss.

I found this series of posts generally helpful. However I am now almost three years after the series and it needs some updating. The Mac OS Yosemite does NOT like the X11 XQuartz form the PI. I get REALLY ugly terminal response on the Mac. The header bar is on the main screen and the background form the Pi takes over the entire screen with a weird transparency effect, and I see my desktop icons from the Mac's desktop. I have two monitors also. I see the background image on both. but the task bar is only on the one monitor. All background clicks are for the Mac and Not the PI. The commands for the Pi are all "off screen". Very undesirable user experience. I would not recommend using the XQuartz solution with Mac OX X Yosemite.

To find the VNC viewer I used
sudo apt-cache search RDP

I picked Remmina
sudo apt-get install Remmina

If you are on the Pixel, the Add/Remove tool is easier to use.
VNC requires you to install a VNC server on your windows machine. The real VNC client is free, but believe the server on windows is not free. Remote desktop is already in windows so you have already paid for it. You may need to enable it. On most versions of windows there is a help function, and if you put "remote desktop" it will talk you through it enabling it, else just google it.

This is a question I am very curious as to a detailed answer to.

Raspberry Pi is capable, but not able to run certain power-hungry programs that could easily be ran on a remote server on another computer.

Can the Pi connect to Windows-based operating systems and control the desktops in such a way that those programs can be run? I have seen lots of people suggest playing Blu-Ray quality movies streaming from another PC, but what about other stuff like World of Warcraft, or Steam in general?

I am not talking about achieving full playability as if you were on your desktop, but at least minimal capability to do things like check auctions in various games, chat with guild members in game, or watch a game of League of Legends or Starcraft II in spectator mode with a controllable camera.

Would that be possible? Is it really as simple as setting up a VNC server on the Windows PC and accessing it from the Pi?
I would start by installing the Remmina client on the PI as it talks VNC and Remote Deskstop. Then if you were unhappy with the images, go for VNC. But before you buy anything for the windows machine, try it or google it. There are various flavours of VNC server and they can be optmised for different things. Less bandwidth eg JPG format or more responsive eg Raw format, so you want to find the server and setting that suits you. It would be annoying to buy something and find the Pi does not have the gutts for what you want to do.

For a remote desktop solution from within the browser (plugin-free), there's a modern solution as shown in this clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wthS8TP ... e=youtu.be

In the clip: on the left side you have a PC with a browser (chrome), while on the right side you have a standard Raspberry Pi 3 connected to a standard Touchscreen and WITHOUT any keyboard attached (keep reading). They are in the same LAN (but they would work on Internet too). In this scenario the PC is a client and the Raspberry Pi is a server.

The Raspberry Pi runs the UV4L Streaming Server which captures whatever goes through HDMI-out and streams it to the browser PC on request. No browser plugin's are necessary.

(Internally the Streaming Server makes use of the UV4L raspidisp driver which creates a virtual input Video4Linux-compliant device from HDMI-out.)

In the clip you can also see another interesting thing, that is the possibility of sending PC keyboard inputs towards the Raspberry Pi in order to control it from with in the browser. In the clip this possibility is used to login in the Raspberry Pi and run omxplayer which plays a video clip.

To test the above, just install UV4L according the installation instructions, reboot and connect to your Rpi with the browser at
http://yourrpi:9080/stream/webrtc

http://www.linux-projects.org/uv4l/installation/

No configuration is required.

The above is an example of use, but UV4L offers a framework for custom development and more complex scenarios.

I've found that using Tightvnc to remote either from Raspberry Pi to to a Windows desktop or vice versa.. from Windows to a Raspberry Pi desktop is best.
