TeamViewer works nicely for me. Free for Windows, Mac, and Linux. https://www.teamviewer.com/

NX/nomachine or VNC are the two suggestions I'd make, VNC can be unencrypted tho so needs care.

I've never used it that way, but TeamViewer will also work on a LAN. See this link on how to activate that feature. Good luck!

It's pretty rare that you would actually need to do this on a Linux machine, what is the application that requires full GUI desktop control of a Linux system across the LAN? Whatever it is, I'm about 95% sure there's a better way to do it.

Agree with suicidaleggroll, the OP should state his reason why need full gui desktop, VNC should do the job. Or SSH is not enough?

I can think of two off the top of my head!

Obviously never had to install and configure Oracle DB..... ;)

if you want to connect from linux to windows or vice versa, you will need to install a client and a server

ex. if you need to connect from windows to linux

windows will be VNC client and in Linux will be the VNC server

Good luck, trawl the web for examples.

Ubuntu believe includes Samba to do this.

Samba makes it easier for users connecting from Windows to Linux, also from Linux to Windows, computers so users can access their own, or with appropriate permissions, other files.



Samba is a suite of programs that allows SMB/CIFS clients to use the
Unix file space, printers, and authentication subsystem.

The package named samba contains all programs that are needed to act as
a server. The binaries expect the configuration file to be found in
/etc/samba/smb.conf

For a more detailed description of Samba, check the samba-doc package
or the Samba.org Web page at https://www.Samba.org/

Teamviewer is fine for what you want to do, yes it connects via internet but on a LAN it will be just as fast as something like Windows RDP. If you just need to transfer files then Samba installed on the Ubuntu pc as others have already mentioned - mostly I use Teamviewer from Windows to Linux pc when traveling for sending files, but occasionally to gui in and play mahjongg :) Sometimes at home while both machines share same kvm I'll TV work pc to home pc when logged onto work vpn, and need something from home pc. Both pc's will need same (equivalent) TeamViewer rev to connect.

As I mentioned above, Teamviewer will connect via a LAN, if that's what the OP wants to do. But Teamviewer cautions about firewall settings to make sure unwanted guests do not also use the remote capability. (Isn't that true with any remote software?)

Thanks stanvan, I hadn't paid attention to that option and will check it out although when I'm vpn'd to company, it drops my local area network connection so not sure if it will work then. When I'm not vpn'd I just use the Windows sharing (with VBox Windows guest on home Linux pc) and Samba sharing with the Linux pc from Windows work pc. There are times when those don't always play together (different topic) where the TV lan option I'm sure will do.
