Hello everyone,

I hope you’re all doing well. I recently set up a Debian server at home for some personal projects and I’m looking to access it remotely using a remote desktop solution. I’ve done a bit of research but I’m still unsure about the best way to go about this. I’m reaching out to the community for some guidance and suggestions.

Here’s my current setup:

  • Server OS: Debian
  • Network: Home network with dynamic IP (considering using a dynamic DNS service)
  • Router: Standard home router
What I’ve tried so far:

  • SSH: I can SSH into the server without any issues, but I’m looking for a graphical interface for certain tasks.
  • VNC: Installed TightVNC on the server but facing some performance issues and occasional disconnections.
What I’m looking for:

  • A stable and secure remote desktop solution.
  • Good performance, even over the internet.
  • Preferably an open-source or free solution, but I’m open to paid options if they offer significant advantages.
Questions for the community:

  1. What remote desktop software would you recommend for Debian?
  2. Any tips on configuring and optimizing VNC or other remote desktop solutions for better performance?
  3. Are there any security concerns I should be aware of when setting up remote desktop access?
  4. Do you have any experience with alternatives like TeamViewer, AnyDesk, or RDP on Debian? How do they compare?
Alternatives I’m considering:

  • RDPHostings.com: Heard good things about its performance and ease of use. Has anyone tried it on Debian?
  • X2Go: Seems like a solid option with good performance reviews. How does it compare to VNC?
  • Chrome Remote Desktop: I use Chrome regularly, so this could be a convenient option. Any thoughts on its reliability and security?
I appreciate any advice or experiences you can share. Setting up a remote desktop has been a bit more challenging than I anticipated, and your insights would be really helpful.

Thanks in advance!
