Hi all,

I was wondering whether Fedora 28 comes with a default SSH and or VNC server software. I was looking at lot of on-line documents and everyone seems to suggest to install different software to be able to connect to my machine through VNC (possibly tunnelled through SSH for security); but I was wondering whether Fedora distributions have pre-installed server components for these?

Thank you for your time.

sshd and X11VNC Server are installed by default.

Thanks for the answer. I'll investigate these options.

I had to install the x11vnc server. It wasn't installed in my Fedora; perhaps it's not a default package any more. However it was pretty easy to get it up and running.
