I am trying to use RDP or VNC from tails with no luck and have been unable to find any useful information online.
I installed remmina and rdp/vnc plug in’s but connection always times out.
I am able to connect using remmina on my Ubuntu OS so i know the problem isn’t the server.
Is this even possible?
Thanks for any help 🙂
The linked guide describes how to connect from a Linux client through Tor to a VNC server running on a hidden service .
It should also work for connecting to non-onion VNC servers through Tor, and on Tails provided that you tell
torsocks what SOCKS port Tails is using. It might be 9151, though I couldn't confirm if that's current.
For your case, the guide should boil down to 3 steps (though I have not tested):
torsocksand a compatible VNC viewer:
Enter the Tails admin password you set when prompted. The package manager update can take awhile. If you've set a persistent volume, it's possible to configure automatic installation on boot.amnesia$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install torsocks xvnc4viewer
Replaceamnesia$ torsocks --port 9151 xvnc4viewer example.org
9151with Tails' tor socks port, and
example.orgwith your remote VNC server IP or hostname.
Note that torsocks is not generally a safe way to tor-ify programs, in the case that the program may use networking library calls that torsocks does not know to override.
However, Tails' firewall is designed to prevent any outgoing connections except through Tor, and thus should prevent any leaks. i.e., torsocks is generally safe if used within Tails.

It is listed among the design specifications but it seems that it does not come with a client by default and requests for this have already been denied.
Quick google search turns up a reddit post suggesting that it is possible but troublesome to setup due to the behavior of the firewall. https://www.reddit.com/r/tails/comments/50gyvz/tails_issues_with_rdpvncteamviewer/
