I am using a Digital Ocean VPS instance running Ubuntu 18.04 and I’m wondering, is it possible to install a GUI desktop interface to the VPS instance? I am currently accessing it via Putty - authenticating to a SSH server.
Also, is it possible to setup the VPS as a proxy for forwarding requests on behalf of say a VM instance running on my home computer? I have a slow internet connection(1 MB/s) and I’m wondering whether that would impede any activity on Burp Suite for Web App testing such that it would be best(if possible) to utilize the VPS service’s fast internet speed. I plan on using Burp Suite Intruder and if it is possible for this workflow to disrupt a company’s service and trigger a security measure that can blacklist my home network, it would be great if I could take advantage of the VPS connection or, again if possible, installing Burp Suite on the VPS instance.
So I installed a desktop interface but accessing it remotely presents lots of latency and the mouse pointer on the Ubuntu VPS instance is not synced/aligned with where I’m pointing my mouse. The mouse issue happens even when I change the display settings to another resolution. Not a good result. The session was performed through DigitalOcean’s console access/VNC functionality. Maybe another VNC service would give me better results at least with the mouse pointer issue?
[UPDATE 2] Mouse synced up nicely with TeamViewer remote access program as opposed to Digital Ocean’s VNC function. However the latency is
