VNC (Virtual Network Computing) is a system for remote access to a computer's desktop. VNC allows you to send keyboard keystrokes and mouse movements from one computer to another, and to relay screen content over a computer network.

VMmanager uses VNC to remotely manage virtual machines (VMs).

VNC does not support clipboard transfer.

Connecting to a VM via VNC

You can connect to a VM:

Connecting from the VMmanager interface

Enter Virtual machines → select the VM → menu → VNC. The VM desktop opens in a new browser tab.

Connecting with a VNC client

Connection settings are defined by the platform administrator. To create a connection, ask your administrator for the VNC server details: address, connection port, and password.

You can change the password in the virtual machine card: Virtual machines → select the VM → Parameters button → VNC settings tab.
