VNC is an acronym which stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is software which allows graphical desktop connections. On the AS/400, a PC can connect to an XWindows session using VNC.

VNC refers to:

  • the server software
  • the server process which accepts the incoming connection
  • the client viewer software

Prerequisites

Starting VNC server processes

STRPTL CLIENT(*VNC)

[2] OR

CALL QP2SHELL PARM('/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/DeveloperTools/vnc/vncserver_java' ':n')

ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(DISPLAY) VALUE('systemname:n')

where:

  • systemname is the host name or IP address of the iSeries system where VNC is running
  • n is the numeric value that represents the display number that you want to start[3]

Ending VNC server processes

CALL QP2SHELL PARM('/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/DeveloperTools/vnc/vncserver_java' '-kill' ':n')

where n is the numeric value that represents the display number that you want to terminate.[3]

The command above should be run by the same userid which started the VNC process. Otherwise the error below will be displayed.

Can't find file /home/USERPRF/.vnc/SERVERNAME.COM:1.pid
You'll have to kill the Xvnc process manually
