Re: VNC on Compass


Also visit your router firewall rules.

I use MikroTik routers, and deploy this strategy which seems to work well

You can also just block external attempts if you just access your Pi from your LAN.

A few observations:

  1. The latest Raspbian/Jesse/Debian 8 releases, upon which Compass is based do not turn on SSH by default, you have to enable it:  sudo systemctl enable ssh ; sudo systemctl start ssh
  2. Since Compass is based on Raspbian-Jesse, you can use Raspbian resources for documentation and help.
  3. I usually use tightvnc or xrdp vs realvnc - be aware that hacker robots probe the well known ports for these applications 
    • Be sure you change/update all system and user passwords 
    • xrdp is accessible from Windows Remote Desktop clients (which are available for Windows, Android, MacOS, ...)

I use putty and it works perfectly for SSH and built some macros to do
ordinary tasks like that. I think I might have had to turn on SSH in
raspi-config and then all was fine.
