I set up a one-click djang+nginx+gunicorn server. installed my app on it. Its working fine. I’m just tired of doing everything through the command line and would like to setup remote desktop. I setup TightVNC on my Mac and followed the digitalocean tutorial for setting it up but no cigar. Can someone help?

    Can you elaborate on what specific issue are you having?

  • I followed the ubuntu 14.04 vnc tutorial and I got to the point where you make an ssh connection to the server from your localhost terminal like this:
    ssh -L 5901:127.0.0.1:5901 -N -f -l user server_ip_address

    for some reason when it asks for my password it keeps saying permission denied. how do i check the password and change it. im pretty sure I created the password correctly but just to make sure

  • it says permission denied when I put in the password after creating the ssh connection. how do i change the password or at least check what it currently is?

Hi, I’m using x2go on my fedora 23 server - was very quick / easy to set up. I tried a number of options before settling on this.

    • You should be able to request a password reset via your droplet’s control panel, which will be emailed to your registered digitalocean address.
