Subject description: Remote desktop using X11vnc
 

This package - pup_xrdp_starter.pet - contains a cut down build of xrdp-0.7 (present git source).
It is configured to only give a shared desktop via x11vnc.
This PET contains the XRDP package and its package dependencies for remote desktop servicing.
Thus, x11vnc and rdesktop dependencies is included in the packaging, as well. The versions of rdesktop & x11vnc are old - upgrade to newer versions if you like.

Steps

1. Download the "pup_xrdp_starter.pet" from ===> here
2. Install the "pup_xrdp_starter" pet by clicking on it..
* If rebooted immediately after installation, then - xrdp & x11vnc should start automatic for you.
* Else, without rebooting, go to /etc/init.d and run "./xrdp_pup start". And, you must go to /root/Startup and run "./x11vnc_start".
3. Your Puppy is now ready to accept logins from another PC on your LAN (or even from this PC as a test).

You will be able to log into this running desktop from another PC. From that other PC, you can either use rdesktop (Linux) or the windows desktop sharing tools (Windows/MACs).

To run a local test from this computer, merely do the following
Code:
# rdesktop localhost

You should get the xrdp logon window then which verify that xrdp is running.
If you log in at this point you will get a lot of windows showing your desktop. Close the windows to disconnect.

You need to write down the IP address of this PC...BEFORE going to another LAN PC. You can find it by opening a terminal on this PC and typing
Code:
# ifconfig

Output would be like
Code:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:D8:98:A0:D0 
          inet addr:192.168.0.112  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:42183 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:24321 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:61394954 (58.5 MiB)  TX bytes:1903776 (1.8 MiB)
          Interrupt:17

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback 
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:2111 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:2111 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:6205179 (5.9 MiB)  TX bytes:6205179 (5.9 MiB)

The IP address in this case is "192.168.0.112".

You are NOW ready to use any other PC on your LAN to get a desktop on this PC.

At any other PC on your LAN
To try this from one of your LAN's Windows/MACS/Linux - remember, Windows and some MACs already have this built-in. With Linux, you need rdesktop installed; if not, open the package manager and add to that Linux.

RDesktop for Linux is what RDP is for Windows and MACs. And some/many distros have it built-in.

From any other LAN PC start the remote desktop software (Rdesktop/RDP) to the desktop. Enter the IP address that you recorded from your PUP. You will get a Login screen coming from Puppy Linux - view attached image. On the screen enter the username (root) and the password (woofwoof). This assumes you are using the defaults on the PUP.

Another way to do the same, is to open a terminal and type
Code:

# rdesktop -u root -p woofwoof "the_eth0_or_wlan_IP_address"

For example
# rdesktop -u root -p woofwoof 192.168.0.112

******************************
Compiled in P412, tested to work in P412, P431 & Wary - xrdp will NOT work in 64 bit Puppy versions (included x11vnc & rdesktop should work in most versions including 64 bit).

This is an excellent tool. Adding this to my PUP, I don't have to walk downstairs to access my running PUP PC anymore, with this tool

And, I DONT HAVE TO INSTALL ANYTHING ON ANY OF MY OTHER COMPUTERS to get to my PUPpies! ("Well, there are a couple of PUP PCs which required a client to be gotten from PPM. All other OSes work right OOTB.)

Thanks

PostPosted: Fri 06 Jun 2014, 05:24    Post subject: This allows U2 Connect 2 your Puppy using a TV/Tablet/Phone  

You can access your Puppy Linux using another PC, smartTablet, smartTV, and smartPhone with the PET shown in this thread's opening post. Just start in on your PUP and from any one of your home devices, get to the PUppy machine.

Hope this is helpful

I found that the machine sharing its desktop would sometimes hang. It was rare but annoying.

I moved the starting of the sharing into a script in the /root/startup this helped with the lockup at startup but not the "random" ones.

I am running puppy 528
