    If you are looking for a free, secure, open source, cross platform remote assistance solution, then you should definitely consider Dayon!

  2. David says:

    Have you considered anydesk?

  3. Tachyon says:

    I like how you kids always have to reinvent the wheel, and make it square. Every Linux and UNIX box has, and was designed for, this capability.

    Access it via ssh -X.

  4. Storm says:

    What about xpra

  5. Richard Steven Hack says:

    Might want to consider SSVNC as well, which directly supports encryption connections which is vital in implementing any remote access solution.

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Thanks for telling about SSVNC, we will check and include in the list..

    • Jeremy says:

      SSVNC has not been updated since 2011. I would not use software that old on a production system, or even a home system if there are alternatives that are more up to date.

  6. Giovanni Fiaschi says:

    Why X2Go is nowhere in the list?

  7. krishnan says:

    Thanks a ton for pointing out nomachine

  8. Giuseppe P says:

    Another great Remote Sharing tool is Anydesk.
