Connecting from a VNC Client
You can now connect to your VNC server. Open your local VNC client, which will vary depending on your operating system.
- On Windows, you can use UltraVNC here.
- On OS X, you can use the built-in Screen Sharing app or access this app through Safari. In Safari, you can enter vnc://yourserverip:5901
For your VNC Server address, enter yourserverip:5901 and use the password you just set for your VNC connection.
