Basic veyon setup



  • Hello everyone,,
    I am helping out a local community school by setting up some new computers in their computer lab. They should all be running Windows except the server which will likely be a linux box acting as a Windows server.

    I am planning on adding veyon. I have never used it before and would like some pointers just to think about it correctly when i read how to set it up. Basically, where does it get setup, and how does the teacher view it.

    I am assuming the server gets set up on the server, the client on every machine including the teacher's, and somehow the teacher can be designated as such to control it. Is that correct? Also, i figure it would be best on a second monitor (if her computer supports it; i have not seen the computers yet) to be dedicated to viewing the students screens.

    Is this correct?



  • Hi @Nigan

    you don't have to install anything on your server so things are not that complicated 🙂 Instead you need to install Veyon on both the teacher and the student computers. On student computers you can omit the Veyon Master component.

    Please see https://docs.veyon.io/en/latest/admin/installation.html and various tutorial videos on Youtube for basic information on how to install and setup Veyon.
