I need VNC access for server that is already running SSH. I need to set up vnc4server. My question is what is the best X server in terms of using least resources and being fastest, what packages should I install? I am working with debian lenny.
Just stick with Xorg (
However, do you have to use VNC? Have you tried X forwarding ? I find X forwarding is easier to use / setup than VNC (assume your local computer runs linux) and you don't have to install the whole desktop environment on your server.
NX would top both VNC and X forwarding in term of speed and responsiveness. But a lot harder to setup (I used NeatX, not the original NX server)
