How to login on VNC with other multiple users

How to login on VNC with other multiple users

I struggled whole day to find out to find how multiple user can access VNC desktops

you create different VNC server with different users and it will assign different ports so you need to connect on specific port of user


first create unix user
login to unix user
generate vnc password using vncpassword
start the VNC server from user
it will give msg of generating log file
Starting applications specified in /home/user/.vnc/xstartup
Log file is /home/user/.vnc/localhost.localdomain:2.log

VNC server creates new server with different ports and you can connect to that ports

if root user started VNC server one port and desktop is assigned to that. you can see in the log file, Connect to that port

vncext: VNC extension running!
vncext: Listening for VNC connections on all interface(s), port 5905
vncext: created VNC server for screen 0

Now start the VNC server with other user and same check the port and you can connect on that port using VNC client and it will ask password you need to give other user’s password
