Headless ac­cess

Linux Format - - STREAM IT! -

The beauty of Linux is that it’s per­fect for headless ac­cess, so once con­fig­ured, hide your server away some­where out of sight and ad­min­is­ter Emby through any web browser, then make sure SSH is en­abled on your server for those times when you need to ac­cess the OS re­motely. Ubuntu uses OpenSSH – so if nec­es­sary, in­stall it as fol­lows: $ sudo apt-get up­date && sudo apt-get in­stall openssh-server

You can then log in through any other com­puter or mo­bile us­ing an ap­pro­pri­ate SSH­com­pat­i­ble client, such as the cross-plat­form Ter­mius ( www.ter­mius.com). Al­ter­na­tively, sim­ply log on through the Ter­mi­nal on an­other Linux ma­chine run­ning OpenSSH: $ ssh user­name@host­name

Sub­sti­tute host­name with the host name or IP ad­dress of your server, and user­name with your user ac­count name from that com­puter.

If you need ac­cess to the desk­top, then con­fig­ure ac­cess via VNC – in­stall the VNC Server ( sudo apt-get in­stall x11vnc ) on your server, then ac­cess via a suitable VNC client.
