    Same uncomplicated and simply working remote desktop application as one day was TeamViewer. And at best: Newer versions can connect to older versions - which TeamViewer always enforced to enforce everybody to upgrade.

    The fact it seems to be running a native Linux binary is excellent, but it also runs in Fedora 25 (which Chrome Remote Desktop still doesn't support) and runs really well.

    No longer free, 14-day trial, nag screens, and a timer. The licence is still cheaper than TeamViewer though.

    It's the best alternative but lacks many of the features found in TeamViewer. If you're on a budget though, this will do in a pinch!

    I have been using this app/chrome extension for years now. It just works fine and it's FREE. No fancy tools, just remote single user support, but that's what I need. 100% recommended!

  3. DWService is an half (only the client/agent) open source project which offers a service that allows access to remote systems (Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry...) using a standard web browser - without any component required on the client side.

    It allows you to fully control the remote system by displaying its screen and allowing cursor control and keyboard input

    Sounds great at first glance. But as always, there is a catch. Yes, the software is open source, but limited in bandwidth, if you want more speed you have to subscribe. And that can cost up to 100 € for 50 Mbps maximum bandwidth per month, 1200,- € or 1346,49 $ per year. Then better use a professional solution like Teamviewer or Anydesk.

    TightVNC requires server configuration and port forwarding. Too complicated for the average remote client who uses Team Viewer for remote support.

    It's not only alternative, it is the best, fastest, and most lightweight among all terminal configurable servers. Also can be used on arm processors where Team Viewer supports only host machine installation.

    Really awesome for Linux users to remotely connect to their computers through a secure connection. Allows for transmission of audio from the client, and works really well even with slow connections. To summarize: secure by default (because using ssh), good even in low latency, good for presentations, and best alternative to RDP for linux users.

    It's the best open source alternative. It doesn't require port forwarding on client side. Just send the client the file and they press connect. That's it.
