After looking at all available remote desktop solution we have found out that TeamViewer for Linux is just best solution out there.
Free software purists are probably going to cringe at this decision but I have to say that there just is no open source piece of software that does easy remote desktop NAT traversal to my knowledge. If there is please let us know.
But it must be EASY, dead easy to use.
If you have static setup from one location to other and access to internet/adsl routers you can setup port forwarding for vnc. But if you have multiple moving customers that have no access to gateway internet router (internet cafe, hotspots) or have no knowledge how to setup port forwarding I see no other solution but to use TeamViewer. Also using vnc mirror technique fails if you are moving part of the equation.
So with permission from TeamViewer team Fusion Linux will have it installed in final release (currently not available in beta release)
Feel free to leave your comments in this blog post but even better leave them in our forum.
I would love to see Fedora and Ubuntu do something similar by taking tightvnc, patching it and also providing server side point for NAT traversal. Until that happens TeamViewer is only game in town for eady and trouble-free remote desktop. TeamViewer works great so if you haven’t tried it go ahead you will be amazed how smooth it works.
