How to Logmein in Linux
The famous Logmein solution does not work for Linux. There are other solutions like:
VNC,DynDns,forwarding ports, FreeNX, thightVNC etc…
But they are all hard to setup, or just take lots of time.
I found today an amazing product called NTRConnect it does what it has to and its quite easy to setup.
It supports Linux,Mac,Windows.
NTRConnect Version 2 for Linux was released in 2008 and it works as advertised.
Download the software to Linux and install it – I found I had to run it using the sudo command within a terminal to get it to install properly.
Download the client from here
Double click and run the wizard, create an account, active by email.
Assure the client process is running:
#ps ax | grep connect
This must be present to comunicate to NTRConnect.com.
To start/stop the service do:
#/etc/init.d/NTRConnectScript start / stop
To login, go to https://www.ntrconnect.com enter your username/password and just click on the computer.
Quite easy isn’t it?
The only negative thing is:
you can’t use Linux to remotely control another machine but you can control a Linux machine remotely using a different OS, like Windows or Mac.
I read rummors that logmein would have a Linux version comming this month April 2009, but so far nothing.
A script to jump firewalls, the user can execute and connect to you and from that connection u login.
Check my post at Reverse SSH script, or
