Enterprise VNC for Unix from RealVNC is implemented using the Unix authentication option; it can use PAM for Authentication.
In Enterprise VNC, the option, PamApplicationName
, specifies the PAM application policy to use. By default, its value is vncserver
To enable Enterprise VNC to do authentication with Centrify DC, it can be done by one of the following options:
- Set PamApplicationName to "other" by setting the option in VNC config file in /etc/vnc/config, or by applying the command option --PamApplicationName=other
- Edit vncserver entries in the pam config file to contain Centrify pam modules.
E.g. Edit lines in pam.conf to contain the Centrify pam modules for system such as HP-UX, and Solaris. Or copy /etc/pam.d/system-auth as /etc/pam.d/vncserver for systems such as Redhat Linux
