Apple Screen Sharing (iChat)
Screen Sharing is a VNC client by Apple Inc. included as part of Mac OS X v10.5. It allows remote observance or control of any Macintosh machine on the local network that has Screen Sharing activated. It may also be used over the Internet via iChat. Because Screen Sharing is a VNC client, it may also be used to control any computer running a VNC server if the IP address of the target computer is known and accessible. Apple’s Back to My Mac feature of MobileMe service offers Wide-Area Bonjour to allow Screen Sharing and File Sharing access beyond LAN.
ThinLinc is a cross-platform remote desktop server developed by Cendio AB. The server software runs on Linux or Solaris. Windows applications and desktops can be accessed using the included integration with Remote Desktop Services or Citrix XenApp, or third-party programs such as Wine, Codeweavers CrossOver, or desktop virtualization software. Clients are available for Linux, Solaris, Windows, OS X, and a number of thin clients ThinLinc uses SSH for transport encryption and authentication, and VNC for graphics, keyboard and mouse. Access to client devices is provided through different open protocols such as PulseAudio for sound (playback and recording), NFS for file system access (using a user space NFS server), and Telnet/RFC2217 for serial port access. Access to a client side Smart Cards is provided via the PC/SC interface using a proprietary protocol.
Chrome Remote Desktop
Chrome Remote Desktop is a remote desktop software tool developed by Google that allows a user to remotely control another computer using a Chromoting protocol developed by Google. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.
Chrome Remote Desktop requires the use of Google Chrome, along with the installation of an extension from the Chrome Web Store.
Chrome Remote Desktop supports both a remote assistance mode, allowing a user to control another person’s computer (typically to diagnose or troubleshoot a problem) as well as a remote desktop mode where a user can connect to another one of their own machines remotely. While remote assistance login via PIN passwords is available for terminals running Windows, Mac, iOS, Android or Linux operating systems, the remote desktop functionality is supported for Windows, Macand Linux operating systems with Linux support in beta. It uses VP8 video to display the remote computer’s desktop to the user. Under Windows, it supports copy-paste and real time audio feed as well, but lacks an option to disable sharing and transmission of the audio stream.
Ulteo Open Virtual Desktop
Ulteo Open Virtual Desktop (OVD) is an open source Application Delivery and Virtual Desktop infrastructure project that can deliver applications or a desktop hosted on a Linux or Windows server to end users. It is an open source alternative to Citrix and VMware solutions and, as of June 2012, the only presentation virtualization solution supporting both Linux and Windows applications. It was created by Gaël Duval,who previously created Mandriva Linux.
Ulteo OVD provides access to applications or an entire desktop session hosted on a Linux or Windows (2003 or later) server. These are executed in a virtual session on the server (as opposed to simple display mirroring). Version 3 introduced RDP as the protocol used for both Linux and Windows applications. Sessions can be accessed through a web portal, using any Java or HTML5-capable browser, or integrated into the local desktop environment and launched like local applications. Remote applications can access local file systems (including network and USB), print to local printers, play sound locally and copy to or paste from the local clipboard. Starting with OVD 4, local PC/SC smartcard readers can also be accessed from a remote application, though this feature is supported only in the Premium edition and only for applications running on Windows servers.
Users can authenticate through Microsoft Active Directory or any LDAP or CAS server. Support for additional authentication mechanisms, including single sign-on, can be implemented using an open API. Ulteo includes a dedicated file server into which other file servers (such as CIFS/Samba/Windows file servers) can be integrated as backends.
The environment can be configured and monitored through a web-based administration interface. A farm can include multiple application servers, running a mix of Linux, Windows and Web servers, and the administrator can configure load balancing between them based on criteria such as processor load, memory usage, number of open sessions or random distribution. Ulteo states that a single farm can serve up to 50,000 users and more.
An SSL gateway is available to deploy applications over the Internet.
Besides the classic application delivery scenario, OVD can also be integrated into web-based document management platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint. Clicking a file in the portal will then open it with an application published on the OVD farm rather than downloading it and opening it with a locally installed application.
Ulteo is distributed as a set of application packages which can be installed on a standard Linux distribution (Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, Redhat Enterprise Linux), with Windows installers also available for some components.
A live DVD (Demo) and a virtual appliance image are available for testing purposes. They contain a full Linux distribution (based on Ubuntu), all Ulteo components and some applications, allowing an Ulteo OVD farm to be quickly installed on a single server. The DVD additionally contains the full documentation and installation sources for all supported operating systems.
