Puppet Server Version <5

usage: Install and configure vnc server

    class { 'vnc': 
      vncusername       => 'vncuser',
      userpassword      => '$1$qCmU0a$a9Q6W/fDzU6zQI42/Z2s',
      vncpassword       => 'password',
      vncport           =>  5900,

Hiera Usage:

    vnc::vncusername:   'test1'
    vnc::userpassword:  '$1$qCmU0a$a9Q6W/fDzU6zQI42/Z2s'
    vnc::vncpassword:   'password'
    vnc::vncport:       '5901'

NOTE: You have to pass the plaintext password for vncpassword param.

Recommended : change the vncserver password manually, instead of passing plaintext to vncpassword. cmd : '$vncpasswd /home/vncuser/.vnc/passwd'

you can pass hash to the userpassword param, use this command "$openssl passwd -1" to generate md5 hash.

To change default browser to firefox , just change the following param

     #usage in manifest
     browser1    =>  firefox    #for ubuntu
     browser2    =>  firefox    #for centos
     #usage in hiera
     vnc::browser1: firefox     #for ubuntu
     vnc::browser2: firefox     #for centos

Module is successfully tested on Ubuntu14-64b and CentOS7-64b.

NOTE: You can not use multiple vncdisplay.

NOTE: please reboot the server after finished the catalog.

Thank you , Have a great day!
