Thread: Monitoring an installation via VNC or SSH.

  1. Monitoring an installation via VNC or SSH.

    Hi All,

    I don't yet have a FAI infrastructure set up but, for now, I wish to simply
    pop in a DVD and then complete the installation remotely via VNC or SSH. Is
    something like this possible? I could not find reference to this in the
    installer boot options or in the install manual. I wish to install testing
    (Lenny).

    Any assistance will be much appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Fred.

    Carry out an "expert" installation and select the "remote console" from
    the list of additional modules to load. That may not be the exact text,
    but it's similar. To start an expert installation, type "expert" at the
    "boot:" prompt (there are other ways of getting there, but that's probably
    the easiest).

    Thanks for the info, I will try this out. After sending this email I also
    found the following references :

    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/Remote
    http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/NetworkConsole

    But the "expert" option seems to be the easiest at the moment.

    Thanks!

    Fred.

    I just wish to report success! It was quite easy and worked really well.

    Cheers,

    Fred.
