Connecting to a headless Linux
When your remote computer running Linux OS doesn't have a monitor connected, there is no active window server ready to serve your app. In this case, remote connections with Cyber Protect Connect may fail.
The workaround is to use a virtual window server, e.g. Xvfb, on your Linux computer:
- Install Xvfb:
sudo apt install xvfb
- Form an appropriate environment:
- Start Xvfb:
Xvfb :0 -screen 0 1024x768x24 &
- Start a desktop environment:
Fluxbox here is just an example of a window manager. You may also run any other one or even start a full-fledged desktop environment (e.g. Gnome).
- Now the Agent should be ready to accept incoming connections to your headless Linux.
