Forward VNC service port 5900 to host by
docker run -it --rm -p 6080:80 -p 5900:5900 dorowu/ubuntu-desktop-lxde-vnc
Now, open the vnc viewer and connect to port 5900. If you would like to protect vnc service by password, set environment variable
VNC_PASSWORD, for example
docker run -it --rm -p 6080:80 -p 5900:5900 -e VNC_PASSWORD=mypassword dorowu/ubuntu-desktop-lxde-vnc
A prompt will ask password either in the browser or vnc viewer.

Hello, how to setup password for this computer? :D
Is there anyway to make changes persistent across restarts of the container? For example, if I do apt-get install wget or download a tar files or something similar is there a way to make it persist instead if it running like a live-boot CD?
Hi, thanks for your awesome package!
would it be possible to upgrade the package to ubuntu v. 16.04 LTS?
how would it be possible to change screen resolution, making it bigger or smaller, based on the browser screen you are using? Any simple way or guidance on how to do so?
hi, when i open firefox and try to access a page, i get "server not found"
the issue is reported also here: https://github.com/fcwu/docker-ubuntu-vnc-desktop/issues/20
Also, i downloaded wget and cannot access anything..
what do i need to do in order to allow traffic (if that is the problem)
it is weird because i can run sudo apt-get update and get latest binaries but i cannot access from other places like firefox and wget.
Password for ubuntu is ubuntu if someone needs it!
How can i enforce user login ?
How can I connect from ssh client?
