[dba-Tech] Remote take over programs

It's odd that this should come in today.  I just spent much of the day 
trying to get Wippien to actually connect the tunnel.  I then resorted 
to Chrome Remote Desktop, which does work but is... basic. Then played 
some more with Wippien and finally got a connect between the two ends, 
whereupon Remote Desktop worked.  RD through Wippien is fast.

Reading about X2Go it seems that it really wants one end (the server) to 
be Linux?

I am interested if in fact it does not require the third-party server.  
I wonder how they establish the initial connection.

It is completely secure using an SSH tunnel, uses a variety of protocols, can connect across the network or across the internet and unlike other applications like GoToMyPC, LogMeIn, TeamViewer or even Plex or Kodi, it does not require a third-party server to make it all operational. Not only can you print and do file transfers between the host and remote but you can also play music and movies through the connection.
