Hi Patrick,

Thanks for you quickly answer.

Yes, x11vnc was installed on my system.

The problem is i not understand the “logic" of vnc connection, so i try to dark…

I copy the /etc/systemd/system/vncserver@:1.service to /etc/systemd/system/vncserver@:0.service

restart the vnc service and obtain

Jul 18 11:17:16 systemd[1]: vncserver@:0.service: control process exited, code=exited status=98
Jul 18 11:17:16 systemd[1]: Failed to start Remote desktop service (VNC).
Jul 18 11:17:16 systemd[1]: Unit vncserver@:0.service entered failed state.

Thanks again,
