Remote Controling a server With the GUI running

I have netware 6.5 servers a remote sites (100's miles away).

I need to use the netware GUI to install Iprint on 6 of those servers. But the GUI interface is does not display using Rconj or Rconsole.

The servers do not have "lights out" cards.

Any ideas on what I can do?

thanks

Install VNC for NetWare and use that to access the GUI remotely?

I wrote a Cool Solutions article on how to do this and secure the VNC
connection - see
https://www.novell.com/communities/coolsolutions/how-securely-access-server-gui-workstation/

Whilst Novell Forge may be gone now you should be able to find the VNC
download by searching for it's filename.

HTH.

I finally figured out how to Remote control the Startx GUI session on Netware.

Install OpenSuse on machine (or VM). From OpenSuse open firefox and go to Norm on the server in question. Then use the remote control screen with Norm. you will need to trust the server and take the server cert. But in the end, it worked.

I got the idea from Novell support.
