vnc Server Module

This is a module for managing a VNC server on Red Hat based hosts. It currently is geared towards rhel6. Pull requests supporting other distros are welcome.

Further Development

Further development of this module will consist of bugfixes and pull requests only.


The simplest method for configuring two VNC servers on :1 and :2

$vnc_arusso = {
  'user' => 'arusso',
  'args' => '-SecurityTypes=VeNCrypt,TLSPlain -PlainUsers=arusso pam_service=login',
$vnc_brusso = {
  'user' => 'brusso',
  'args' => '-SecurityTypes=VeNCrypt,TLSVNC',

class { 'vnc': servers => [ $vnc_arusso, $vnc_brusso ] }

You should now be able to connect to 5901 as arusso and 5902 as brusso.
