Hi. I want to use a Sparc server as a development platform but it has no graphics card. What remote desktop options are there available for a server hosted on Solaris Sparc and clients running on Solaris Intel, Linux, or Windows. Thanks.
Hi. I have used vnc before and it was ok but a bit slow. I will have to search for xvfb and xdmcp. Where do they run? Could you say a few lines on where the various pieces run and how they are used? I'll look online in the meantime. Thanks.
xvfb is just that. A virtual (non-existant) frame buffer that you can use on a headless system.
On Solaris 11 Express it's just:
pkg install x11/server/xvfb
For xdmcp use:
pkg install system/display-manager/xdm
and then configure as you would as if you had a display adapter in the host machine.
