Help a networking noob setup vncserver on a linux box - Page 2

I can connect both machines to a VPN... I think that if they are both on the VPN, it should be easy for them to connect to each other?

Again, are these computers on the same subnet? i.e. one's IP address is 192.168.1.25 and the other is 192.168.1.26, (192.168.1.X)?
If they are, then yeah, you can do VPN (you won't be accomplishing anything that would yield different changes, seeing as they would be on the same exact network.) but that is quite extreme just to do VNC.

What if you try enabling X forwarding through SSH then after login
do a startx?

They are both already on a VPN. It is the only way to connect to the Internet on campus.
I can also connect my laptop to the VPN from home, through my own Internet connection, using point-to-point tunneling.

The one problem I ran into while trying to set up VNC on an Ubuntu box was someone has to be physically at the machine to log on in order to do VNC

Set to auto-login?

I've never had that issue.

I keep it turned it and logged on at all times, just with the screen locked.
