The dependencies should already be installed.
Run epoptes from a terminal on the server,
and epoptes-client from a terminal on the client,
then try to monitor the user screen etc,
and attach the terminal output here.

I runned epoptes on a terminal while the firewall was active. I also added the rules to allow vnc going through the network. I also added the port 789 and 5*** as recommended. i've just assumed that since i could see the client there were no need to change the status of the firewall. Because of unknown reason the firewall still not allow the VNC connect to the client:

****@****~$ epoptes

ssvncviewer -listen: Listening on port 40041 ipv4_fd: 4 ipv6_fd: 5

Then i runned:

****@****~$sudo ufw disable

I am not sure but i guess i needt to allow the ports trough the firewall to get the firewall always enabled
