RIPT 11 – RIPT Server (VNC)

To run GUI programs on our Kali box we’ll use VNC.

Launch the TightVNC server and set a password. While the password is limited to 8-characters, it’s not really a concern as the service will only be listening on localhost.


Once the password has been set we can make it a startable service.

vi/vim/nano /etc/systemd/system/tightvncserver.service

Description=TightVNC remote desktop server

ExecStart=/usr/bin/tightvncserver -localhost -nolisten tcp :1


Let the system know we’ve added a service.

systemctl daemon-reload

And finally set it to start on boot.

systemctl enable tightvncserver.service
