Are Dedicated Servers running X Windows?
« on: June 05, 2009, 05:19:11 AM »
Are Dedicated Servers running X Windows?  If they are, can I use TightVNC to log in?

Thanks

Greetings,

X Window is  not installed by default as dedicated servers don't have monitor connected. Although you can try to configure X server on your machine and then use VNC with it, it will be rather  hard to do so without monitor. I would recommend using X Window feature and setup an X server on your machine and then specify it for applications on your server, if you need to use some graphical software there.
Kind Regards,
