Use Local VNC Viewer to Access Guest VM Console

Here I'd like to explain how to configure the Java RAS proxy so that you can use your preferred local VNC client to access the guest VM console when using Oracle VM 3.2. For more details and the background, please consult Oracle VM 3.2 Installation and Upgrade Guide where it explains the VNC console used to connect virtual machines in x86-based server pools.



To configure which VNC viewer to use with the Options > Configuration menu item of the Java RAS proxy window, enter the path to the VNC client on the client desktop computer.


On a Windows desktop, for example,  specify the parameters $host and $port if the VNC client requires these parameters in a different format than the default host:port, then click OK.


If you don't have a local VNC viewer, be sure to get the latest TightVNC package from Oracle's public YUM repository to be installed on the server running Oracle VM Manager:



# rpm -ivh tightvnc-java-1.3.9-5.noarch.rpm

Fore more details, visit the documentation:
