I have need to remotely access my desktop computer from my laptop while on the road. I have my Firewall setup to give me a VPN connection into my home network. I looked at the Arch Wiki and it appears there are several options to pick from for remote desktop access. I just need advice on what would be the easiest remote desktop app to get setup on the server (GUI preferred but I can also do CLI).
I do have SSH access setup and working. I was contemplating doing X11 forwarding but I haven’t used it in a very long time. Really the only thing I need to access is Thunderbird that is on the Desktop computer. If X11 forwarding is easy enough, I will also consider that route but really I’m looking for the path of least resistance as I need this working by Friday.
I spent a day trying to get TigerVNC working but could not get it to work. Stubbornely I was ignroing the suggestion to use X2Go thinking it was some sort of paid program. Looked into it after getting frustrated with TigerVNC and realized it was exactly what I was looking for. A few simple commands referncing the Arch Wiki and I’m up and running. Thanks everyone!
