Remote Access Tools




TeamViewer on Windows

TeamViewer provides an easy way to login and remote control a PC. It allows for remote assistance as well, with users granting access to a remote helper and monitoring actions. It can be used without user registration, as access codes and passwords are automatically provided.

TeamViewer can be downloaded here, portable version here. Note that the portable version does not allow for saved login information. Android and iOS versions provide mobile access to PCs as well.

TeamViewer on Linux

Install using these commands on Ubuntu:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
dpkg -i teamviewer_linux.deb
sudo dpkg --remove-architecture i386

However, TeamViewer requires around 17 MB of extra packages on Ubuntu and may not be useful on a headless server. It also requires a framebuffer (which may not exist on a headless server) and local access to install.
