Setting up VNC on Fedora 14

As part of going down the wrong path to debug another problem, I found myself trying to set up VNC Server on my new Fedora 14 machine. Setting up VNC itself is pretty simple with yum and instructions can be found here including configuring the firewall to accept it: How to Setup VNC.

Of couse, once you have VNC running, Fedora don’t actually let you access it from a client and eventually I found this post which answered how to configure SELinux to allow remote connection to VNC: Fedora 14 and SSH port forwarding.

I love Linux, but sometimes it’s things like these that can drive general users away.
