Logging In to a Server Using VNC


Log in to a server using the Virtual Network Computing (VNC) service.

The VNC service configuration function provided by the iBMC enriches KVM operation interfaces and provides a more flexible KVM operation mode. The VNC is an open-source protocol, and you can obtain the required VNC tool from a variety of third-party VNC tools available.

The VNC service supports data transmission with or without SSL encryption. This section uses the VNC transmission without SSL encryption as an example.



The client (local PC) is connected to the iBMC management network port of the target server.


  • iBMC management network port address and port number (VNC service port number)
  • VNC service password


A third-party VNC client, for example, TigerVNC or RealVNC, has been installed on the local PC.
