If you need to use VNC for GUI, please log in to any workstation. In this tutorial, we use linux1 as example.
and you will see the following message:
New 'linux1:1 (ACCOUNT)' desktop is linux1:1 Starting applications specified in /home/dept/ta/lydian/.vnc/xstartup Log file is /home/dept/ta/ACCOUNT/.vnc/linux1:1.log
- If you haven’t used VNC server before, you will be asked to set a password. This password is needed when you are to log in to your VNC server.
After that, please view ~/.vnc/linux1:1.log , and you will see the following log:

Open your VNC client (e.g. VNC-Viewer)
Server is the machine you execute
vncserver, in this case, it would be linux1.csie.ntu.edu.tw.
