I read here that for fedora remote desktop functionality I need to install vino, the default gnome server. I couldn't find it any where.. please any help? I'd like to try to admin (graphically, under gnome) this machine from a remote linux client (ideally the local user should be able to see what I'd doing like for support).

You have to install Vino

sudo dnf install vino

Then go to Settings and click on Sharing. Here you should see Desktop Sharing: enable it and configure it (password, trusted network, etc.)

Please note: Remote desktop functionality is not yet supported under Wayland , so you have to start the user session using Xorg (look at the wheel in the login screen).

Please is the router configuration of the remote client LAN necessary? I won't be able to use it otherwise. Thanks

Check this, no config needed, no security issues with open ports on router, easy to use, even cross platform, windows into linux and linux into windows or mac into windows or mac into linux.


Get the one for Fedora, of course.

Please note: even if teamviewer is a good product (apart recent security concerns), it is not free software nor open source.

free for non commercial use. but you are correct about it being closed source. i have used them for years with windows, so I do trust the integrity of the company.

You can use on premise R-HUB remote support servers. It provides browser based Linux remote support.
