After installing redis on my machine I received the following error message:
redis-server.service: Can’t open PID file /var/run/redis/redis-server.pid (yet?) after start: No such file or directory
This message comes because redis refuses to start with disabled ipv6. To get it running you have to remove “::1” from “bind 127.0.0.1 ::1” in /etc/redis/redis.conf. Then redis starts as expected.
First prepare the ubuntu machine by installing vino:
sudo apt install vino
Then hit windows button and look for sharing. Configure the system to allow remote connections with given password.
You also need to disable encryption with:
gsettings set org.gnome.Vino require-encryption false
Then you can access the machine from your Mac with Screen Sharing app with the url
To create a network bridge with netplan you have to create a file
macaddress: <some mac>
Make sure to place a mac address in and replace the interface name enp6s0 with yours.
Then run sudo netplan apply.
The machine gets a new IP from dhcp so make sure you have it configured in your dhcp before or have a local console 😉
