Remote Access to Active Display

Hello All,
I am looking for recommendations for a package that will allow me to remotely access and control the active desktop running on my machine.

While running CentOS 7.9 I had good success with x11vnc, however with Alma Linux 8.7 I have not been successful in replicating the same setup.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

currently we use teamviewer but x2go was great before the company decide to use teamviewer.

yum list | grep x2go
x2goagent.x86_64 epel
x2goclient.x86_64 epel
x2goserver.x86_64 epel
x2goserver-common.noarch epel
x2goserver-desktopsharing.x86_64 epel
x2goserver-fmbindings.x86_64 epel
x2goserver-printing.x86_64 epel
x2goserver-xsession.noarch epel

Hello there,
Thank you for your advice on x2go. I’ve not heard of this program before.

I have given it a try and the Remote Desktop feature to control the active session works great. Not only that, I didn’t need to make any custom script or service files, and it even has support for xdmcp connection.

I know this is solved but no machine is very good ( I haven’t tried x2go yet - may take a look at some point )

The x2go is a fork of earlier no machine.

Hello @bob, please the more suggestions the better. I’d seen this “no machine” floating around during my search. I shall definitely test it out and see how well it works. :slightly_smiling_face:
