You can configure a virtual machine to allow any virtual network computer (VNC) client to access the virtual machine by connecting to your Mac.
VNC software enables you to view and interact with one computer from any other computer or mobile device anywhere on the Internet. VNC software is cross-platform, enabling remote control between different types of computers.
Table 1 describes the ways in which you can set up VNC.
|Remote Desktop, Screen Sharing, or Third-party VNC server on the Mac host||
|VNC server provided by Fusion||
|VNC server inside the virtual machine's guest operating system||
This procedure describes how to use the VNC server provided by Fusion to enable a VNC Client to access the virtual machine remotely.
- Select .
- Select a virtual machine in the Virtual Machine Library window and click Settings.
- Under Other in the Settings window, click Advanced.
- Select the Remote display over VNC check box.
- (Optional) Type a password.
Because data sent over VNC is unencrypted, do not use your regular password.
- Identify the port on the Mac.
The default port is 5900. If you enabled screen sharing on the Mac, port 5900 might already be in use and you must use another port, such as 5901. For multiple virtual machines, increment the port number for each additional virtual machine.
Your virtual machine is now visible to VNC clients.
