Haiku remote connections? how use haiku remotely?

Haiku remote connections? how use haiku remotellly?

i mean the ost simpls way, as onl linux are x11vnc, on guindows are rdp server…

how can haiu run a remote desktop of the current session and others os connecting to?

Rdp. Check the Depot.

thanks… please i suggest that nighty builds comes with that, so virtualbox or real hardware can use headless or away of the real user

Sorry, my mistake, it is VNC.
The server is in Depot, no need to add it to the base install.


Haiku also ship with its own remote_app_server, but you can currently only connect to that from another Haiku machine. Also there is no GUI for it yet.

ummm seems not as i noted, now i have some work in wich i can contribute… but in spanish… sorry…

RDP are also available as sever?

Ihear/read about an “TTAnyWhere” interface and some Vnc x11vnc like program! that’s true and where i can find it?



that documentation only docs the client related, we need documentation for the server…

TTAnywhere is a commercial graphical user interface for VNC, http://www.tunetrackersystems.com/ttanywhere-remote-access-server.html If you don’t need the GUI goodies or don’t have the money, but have more time to figure out things, you can use the command line VNC server (1.27 is the latest) mentioned earlier in Haiku Depot and also available at http://fatelk.com/repo.

For RemoteDesktop there is not much to do on the server side except making sure you can log in through ssh. The client uses that to start the server itself.

This is similar to using “ssh -X” on Linux systems (except we don’t use the X11 protocol so it is not compatible).

i see the command line server, but seems doe snot able to serve the current running sesion? i not start at this way … only open new buffer… its there’s same behaviour like x11vnc does in linux?

P.D. : umm TTanywhere are very xpensive but seems great work in terms of graphicall interface! and works in mobiles!

All VNC servers work with most VNC clients. Sometimes the client happens to be an app on a smartphone. There is quite a large choice of VNC clients available, though I can recommend the RealVNC company’s ones (I’ve used the iPad and PC varieties) as working well with the previously mentioned Haiku/BeOS VNC server.

i’m not talking about client, i’m talking about server part. i want to server current opened session on screen not a new frambuffer session… puff

If you run Haiku in emulation anyway, why would you want to run another OS on top of Haiku instead of on the host? In any case, virtualization often comes with the ability to export the system as RDP or Splice session which works very well.

For all the heavens and extraterrestrials! I want to use the “Haiku” as the main operating system in which to emulate the others, BUT, additionally in a virtual machine emulate it, obvimente in a virtual service where there are no graphics, puff!

It’s also possible to use the bulit-in HTML5 remote desktop from any modern web browser. See https://git.haiku-os.org/haiku/commit/?id=85195eb807af5d80e9c0f9d48337e32f50ea6f84 for more information. It’s quite usable, actually.

I had no idea this already existed. I got to try it!
