I'm looking for an (ideally FOSS) alternative to TeamViewer.
I need to support less tech-savvy people using Windows as well as Linux on their computers - and of course it would be great to serve all of them using the same tool...
Most of the host systems don't have a static IP address, and I'm afraid I can't VPN into their local LANs.
Please feel free to retoot - I'm looking forward to any suggestions
Thanks for sharing your experience with us!
Please correct me if I'm wrong: from what I understand #Guacamole seems to be a pretty nifty solution for remote access to Linux machines - at least I don't see a Win installer?
If I can't manipulate router settings (for DynDNS & Port Forwarding) and can't VPN into a local network - how do I connect to a computer with a dynamic IP address? And to different computers in the same NAT? 😳
In order to access the other computers in my (all windows) office, I would place a separate computer there, run Linux and install #Guacamole.
After that I can make a connection to the Linux machine from outside (Port Forwarding needed?) and from there I can connect via VNC or RDP to the Windows machines?
@tetrapyloctomist exactly :) port forwarding is best if possible.
Sorry if I'm asking too many questions
@tetrapyloctomist Protocols: yes, RDP steals the session and VNC can share it so RDP on some servers, VNC all the rest of Win desktops. It's a VM with 2GB of RAM, 32G storage on multi0core host.
