How to secure VNC on IGEL


We just ran a port scan from an outside security vendor and reports ports 5900 is unsecure and accessible via VNC. Is there a way to secure VNC as it’s a complete vunerability. This feature is needed to remote to devices but is flagged as a potential security risk.


Not sure to get you right, but you could use the Secure VNC setting:

kb.igel.com/endpointmgmt-6.05/en/secure-shadowing-vnc-with-ssl-tls-31599794.html kb.igel.com/endpointmgmt-6.05/en/secure-shadowing-vnc-with-ssl-tls-31599794.html

That wouldn‘t change the protocol and port but it would change the level of security.

The alternative could be to change the port from the x11vnc but that‘s a bit out of support 😉


Is this the correct setting/policy in UMS?


Yes, exactly.


OMG that’s crazy 🙂
