I have configured vnc access to my stations. Server is running , responding etc..
However noticed wired thing while connecting from other device (Ubuntu machine, Android phone, other linux distros). My screen seams to be looping even if I have only one monitor and 1 desktop available. Result is:
Sorry for picture quality (it was made on phone as screenshot to show that strange bahavior). In reality everything is sharp as usually but presented on several mulltipled screens on bottom side. Some of then as you see are cutted , some are fine.
If I connect from Garuda to other x11vnc server then issues is gone. Only Garuda is affected.
Anyone noticed that particular behavior?
How to fix it?
Found a similar case with Ubuntu, but it was posted 6 years ago and as I confirmed doesn't occure anymore.
Believe ixin information isn't required here, hence I skipped it.
In my case the problem of looping screens were related to caching. Some vnc players like Remmina with vnc pluging or android vnc apps are not handling caching. So to fix that situation vnc server has to be run with turned off caching.
Sure. I have a different softs for remote control like VNC, XRDP, freerdp, nomachine, x2go, x11,team viewer, chrome desktop.
Each one has prons and cons in my opinion. My favourite is definitelly xrdp. It's nightmare to set up it on Garuda comparing to other distros (Ubuntu, Kali, Sorin, OpenOS, Mint, WindowsFX, LinuxMX -tried all of them..) Plus I feel it's the fastest and smoothest option during regular working.
I like VNC because a few connections can be made at the same time to the same screen.
Nomachine is cool because it automatically finds available computers, but really dislike user interface design in the same time.. Doesn't feel like UX smart project.
X2go is also great from my experience.
As long as I use it in my home network only I simply don't care BTW: which one desn't require port opening?If opened port is an issue why not use any VPN here (in case when outside connection has to be established)?
Well, I mostly avoid most of that list, personally speaking. I used to use and recommend TeamViewer, until I realized part of their system requires you to run a root-running service, even just to run the client to connect to someone. This to me was an unacceptable addition to the already very insecure design of Team Viewer, which there are plenty of issues there.
X2Go with x2goserver works in a pinch if you want to run locally or even, to some extent, remotely over ssh, to run specific applications. It can work with sharing a desktop, but, it's not really that wonderful.
Alternative to that my defacto standard is AnyDesk. Similar to TeamViewer, but a heck of a lot more secure by design, and by use with other people, letting them know, by default, who is trying to connect so they can verify them and allow them with specifics of their choice. Handy for helping friends out for sure. At the same time, great mobile apps and desktop apps for pretty much all the OS's.
And like your nomachine stuff, automatically discovers local instances of AnyDesk so you can easily build your bookmarks of hosts to connect to, both locally and remotely.
