4.1.2. VPS access via VNC

VNC is a system for remote access to another device using the RFB protocol. Allows you to transfer all actions from the client device to the server and receive the contents of the server screen regardless of the current state of the OS. VNC access can be used to install the OS on a VPS, diagnose when there is no access to SSH, in case of problems with loading, etc.

Access data to the server via VNC are in the section "VPS" in the tab "SSH / VNC" in the block "VNC":

  • "Server" — server and port for VNC connection (separated by colon).
  • "Password" — password for connecting via VNC.
  • "Access" - enable / disable access to the server via VNC.
  • "WebVNC" — connecting to the server using webclient.

You can connect to a VPS over VNC using the built-in web client or any third-party VNC client, such as the free TightVNC or TigerVNC.

WebVNC is a web client built into the control panel. With it, you can quickly connect to the server via VNC without using third-party applications.
