Remote Display on Debian 8 Jessie

ssh -X is a nice build-in feature to get display but it could be very slow.
Here a fast non-secure way to get a remote desktop with tighvnc.

On Remote Host:

apt-get install tightvncserver

On Local Host

apt-get install gvncviewer
gvncviewer Remote_Host_IP:1

When done kill Xtightvnc On Remote Host:

pkill Xtightvnc
ps -ef | grep Xtightvnc
