    I have enabled Remote Desktop Server for the sandbox, default port=3389. I tried using the microsoft mstsc.exe to make a RD connection to it, but not luck. Should RealVNC work? If not, what should i use to RD to the sandbox.

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for trying Hortonworks Sandbox.

    Can you please clarify how you enabled Remote Desktop Server on Sandbox?

    Hi Seth,

    I just spent last 10 minutes trying to find where I enabled RD, not able to find it yet. I do remember seeing the checkbox for it and the default port shown. Maybe you can find out from the developers.

    Hi Sam,

    Currently X Windows is not installed within the Sandbox so this won’t be possible. The Sandbox is accessible via web, SSH and Hadoop APIs. So for example you should be able to use Eclipse and deploy apps to it or run apps against it.

    Can you describe in more detail what you’re trying to do?
