A mini tutorial about: remote access in Linux.
This works if you have another computer in your LAN running a Linux Fedora Desktop. Tested on Fedora 27.
1. Enable Remote Access in the host
Make sure that
vino is installed, as seen here:
rpm -q vino
If it says it’s not installed then install with:
sudo dnf install vino
Go to Settings > Sharing.
Turn Sharing to
ON. Then Remote Login to
It will show a message to use
ssh something.local to connect to this host. Where
something might be the host name.
2. Test Remote from a guest
From another computer’s terminal. Type the command that was shown on the host.
It will ask to accept the signature and to login.
The prompt will change to your prompt
$. You could add
\h to your
bashrc config so you don’t get confused. Then use
exit to go back to your local terminal.
3. SSH to IP address
I found that connecting to
something.local for the first time it worked with no problems. Further times it wouldn’t connect. I made sure the remote computer wouldn’t go into suspend mode. That didn’t solve the problem.
Using the remote IP address works every time. Find the remote IP and connect using SSH.
