Setting up an Xvnc Server for remote logins

Those of us Windows admins that like the mstsc /v:hostname option of connecting to our Windows Boxes may also want a “feel at home” approach for Linux.

I personally like to be able to use vncviewer ip_address:port to connect and get a complete Linux Desktop.

The instructions for completing this are here.

But the end result is as show in these screen shots:
VNC Viewer on Windows

Remote VNC based GDM Login

Linux Desktop over VNC
