Full Description


This is a minimal image running an X server with openbox on the docker container, and making it available from any recent browser without requiring any configuration on the client side.

It has been modified to look for the $PORT0 variable and start the websocket in that port if defined. This would be useful for deployment with Marathon and DC/OS.

Use Cases

  1. Provide system application accessible over the web easily.

  2. Create a use & throw linux envinronment with GUI over cloud or any VPS /Server or at your laptop.

  3. Multi-user environments that need isolation and privacy.

How to use

docker run -td -p 6080:6080 fernandosanchez/simplenovnc

If deployed inside Marathon, the VNC servers will be automatically be available in the "Service Port".

For access within lan / localhost : visit http://localhost:6080 or http://privateip:6080
if you are running it in a local docker host or lan ip . click connect. You are good to go.
