How to Access the VNC Lab

SSH

You may log into the VNC Lab systems via SSH, just like you would for any other EECS Linux system. Please see the remote access knowledge base page for more information.

RealVNC

All VNC Lab systems support access via the RealVNC client software, providing a secure (encrypted) remote desktop connection. This can provide a faster desktop experience than using X11 forwarding with SSH. Please see the RealVNC knowledge base page on how to connect.
