Microsoft + Open Source “How To”: Accessing Linux-based GUI on Azure over browser with fernapp


Posted by Jose Miguel Parrella

fernapp is an open source tool that can run a GUI application on a Linux server that can be accessed via web browser.

In this brief demo, I’ll setup fernapp on an Azure-hosted Linux virtual machine and export a Linux-based GUI over a TCP endpoint so it can be consumed remotely on a browser.

Any other interoperability scenarios you'd like to see? Please let us know in the comments!
