I have read a little on remote desktop and being able to take control of someone's computer (of course with their permission) and make repairs. Here is a situation that could have saved our friend $129 if I could have remote desktoped into her son's computer. Everything they had to pay $129 for I could have done myself and of course done it for free.
In Linux, is there a "Best way" or "Best Application" to use that could remote desktop into a client or users computer (Windows based OS) so that I could make repairs or run virus scans should this happen again. Her son is 17. It's going to happen again.
I have read some stuff on a Linux application called rdesktop. Have not checked to see if this is available via Arch Linux but am sure it is. Has anyone used this program in Linux to take control of a Windows OS on a clients, friends, relatives computer?
Your opinions are always appreciated.
All the best,
