How to connect Jetson nano remotely to laptop?

I am a newbie, please suggest me how I can avoid using usb monitor and connect jetson using lan or wifi using remotely.

Don’t know about the USB monitor, but over ethernet you can use ssh to connect (console login). “scp” also works for file copy, or “sftp”.

  1. Go to your network settings and figure out what the ip address of your Nano is.
  2. get a terminal program for your PC like Tera Term.
  3. Use tera term to SSH into the box

I used xrdp since vnc server was not starting up on boot. tried debugging it but was unsuccessful to start it as a service.

below command showed error:

gsettings set org.gnome.Vino enabled true

No such key ‘enabled’


Please tell me in some detail. What is this software and code?

Hello @ansjaved67
In this tutorial Setting Up VNC | NVIDIA Developer
You can enable VNC server on your Jetson device:

1. Enable the VNC server to start each time you log in
     If you have a Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit (running LXDE)
          mkdir -p ~/.config/autostart
          cp /usr/share/applications/vino-server.desktop ~/.config/autostart/.

     For all other Jetson developer kits (running GNOME)
          cd /usr/lib/systemd/user/
          sudo ln -s ../vino-server.service ./.

2. Configure the VNC server
          gsettings set org.gnome.Vino prompt-enabled false
          gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false

3. Set a password to access the VNC server
          # Replace thepassword with your desired password
          gsettings set org.gnome.Vino authentication-methods "['vnc']"
          gsettings set org.gnome.Vino vnc-password $(echo -n 'thepassword'|base64)

4. Reboot the system so that the settings take effect
          sudo reboot

To the host (laptop) side, I used Remmina and it worked
