Client-less VNC Control in the Browser
how about opt in instead of opt out.
that script was designed for good, but has been used buy some bad character's, it was included in other programs installers and installed without permission.and that ruined it's credibility.
that's why malwarebytes flags it..
it didn't run in my browser uBlock must have blocked it..or it didn't like linux Smile
mare liberum
I have tried x11vnc with noVNC.
Now I can connect the rpi desktop with a vnc client (realvnc client does also work).
Or I can connect the rpi desktop with a browser. http://openplotter.local:6080/vnc.html
Copy and paste does work with both. In the browser is a menu on the middle left side with a clipboard.
(When you use tightvnc you can't get the rpi desktop

My configuration starts on every boot. The disadvantage is the unencrypted data.

1. Uninstall realVNC and old websockify
Quote:sudo apt purge -y realvnc-vnc-server websockify websockify-common python-websockify

2. Install x11vnc

Quote:sudo apt-get install -y x11vnc
sudo x11vnc -storepasswd /etc/x11vnc.pass

   create file "sudo nano /lib/systemd/system/x11vnc.service" with

Description="Start X11VNC"

ExecStart=/usr/bin/x11vnc -display :0 -auth guess -forever -rfbauth /etc/x11vnc.pass -rfbport 5900 -shared
ExecStop=/usr/bin/x11vnc -R stop


  activate load on boot

Quote:sudo systemctl enable x11vnc.service

3. install novnc
Quote:git clone
cd websockify
sudo python install
cd ..
git clone

   create file "sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/novnc.service" with

Description = start noVNC service

ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/websockify --web /home/pi/noVNC/ 6080 localhost:5900
ExecStop=/usr/bin/killall websockify


  activate load on boot
Quote:sudo systemctl enable novnc

4. test
  start services
Quote:sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl start x11vnc.service
sudo systemctl start novnc.service

Open realvnc client and connect as done before to test if vnc server works.
Open http://openplotter.local:6080/vnc.html (or [ip-address]:6080/vnc.html) in the browser to test if both work.

reboot and check again

5. Resolution
If you doesn't connect a monitor to rpi4. You can't connect. Solution: Use sudo raspi-config to set a resolution.
