Remote connection to computers is as old as computer networks. Accessing the graphical interface (GUI) is a convenient way of working on a remote desktop. We can leave our graphical programs running and working, and we don't need to keep the session open - we simply reconnect when we feel to do so.

VNC server is well-known graphical session server enabling remote connections that we can run with a non-privileged user. This way many users can access their own desktop on the same machine remotely, and will not block each other (apart from maybe using up the resources of the remove machine).

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • How to install required packages.
  • How to setup and start the VNC server on RHEL 8.
  • How to connect to a graphical session remotely.
  • How to run graphical programs in the xterm session.

In our connected world, it is good to now in what shape our network is, from the end-user perspective. While we may not be able to change the network environment, knowing it's limits is useful. If you have to upload a large ISO image to the server, you can decide to go grab a coffee after the transfer starts, if you know your corporate network will not be able to transfer that much data in the next hour. This is of course just a random fictional nightmare, but knowing the network throughput means knowing how our systems will perform regarding network communication, and have another known area when debugging.

A hostname is the label or name linked to a device on a network. Its main purpose is to recognize a device on a specific network or over the internet. There are three different hostname types:
  • Static - Most of the time you will be interested in this type of hostname which is defined by user and the /etc/hostname configuration file.
  • Transient - This type of hostname is defined within kernel space and by default it is set to be the same as the static hostname. Transient hostnames can be set/updated by DHCP or mDNS at runtime.
  • Pretty - Pretty hostname allows for additional characters as per UTF8 character set hence serving rather only for presentation purposes. The pretty hostname also allows to include spaces.
This article will explain how to change or set hostname on RHEL 8 / CentOS 8 Linux server or workstation. To change hostname you will use the hostnamectl command.

In this tutorial you will learn:
  • How to change the static hostname.
  • How to change the transient hostname.
