Introduction[edit]

Warning[edit]

Remote administration of any system should be considered a potential anonymity hazard, since it is not under the user's physical protection and could be compromised. Although counter-intuitive, it is necessary to follow all relevant recommendations in the Surfing Posting Blogging chapter to stay safe:

At a minimum, check the connection is encrypted / authenticated, because Virtual Network Computing (VNC) [archive] by default is unencrypted / unauthenticated. Possible methods:

  • Perhaps by tunneling VNC through SSH;
  • Running VNC through a Tor Onion Service;
  • Using both SSH and an Onion Service, for stronger encryption and authentication; or
  • Onion Services Authentication.

UDP[edit]

It is suggested to utilize software that does not require the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), for the following reason.

Ambox notice.png The Tor software does not yet support UDP, [1] although Tor provides a DnsPort.

If UDP is urgently required in Whonix ™, a limited workaround is provided. For the most secure method, see Tunnel UDP over Tor.

Remmina[edit]

It is possible to remotely administer any operating system with GNU/Linux by using the Remmina [archive] desktop client. Remmina supports multiple network protocols, including RDP, VNC, SPICE, NX, XDMCP, SSH and EXEC. For an overview of Remmina features, see here [archive].

Note there are two separate Debian packages:

  • remmina: the main GTK+ application.
  • remmina-plugins: a set of plugins to support various network protocols.

Install remmina.

1. Update the package lists.

sudo apt-get update

2. Upgrade the system.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

3. Install the remmina package.

sudo apt-get install remmina

The procedure of installing remmina is complete.

If you are interested in using Remmina, please first search the forums for this topic: https://forums.whonix.org/search?q=remmina [archive]
