how to remotely reapir windows from fedora


I just removed windows vista from my system. Within vista I was used to remotely accessing and repairing customers computers via teamviewer6. Now I have fedora and it is like learning computing all over again. I found "remote desktop viewer" but it seems as though that only allows my system to be controlled, not for me to control others. I tried to get tightvnc but from what I can find, it is dated and no longer available. I was able to get tigerviewer via "pkcon search name vnc". But when I try to use or search for tigerviewer it is not available.

Says I have it installed but I can not get it to work:

[root@localhost JamesJacobs1]# tigervnc
Command not found.
[root@localhost JamesJacobs1]# pkcon search details tigervnc

I tried rdesktop 192.168.1.100 this is one of my local pc, but it keeps coming up with this pc 192.168.1.104 desktop and will not let me login. guess it is because it cant access the system that is trying to get out.

http://www.techotopia.com/index.php/...Desktop_Access seems to show what you need, for Fedora as well as Ubuntu. I hope it helps

APOLOGIES FOR DUPLICATION, I think my reply coincided with your last post?

Thanks sonic but I want to do just the opposite. I want to control other users windows desktops, from my linux for me to do remote repair on their systems.

Can't you set up a vnc reverse connecting client? I've seen it done with windows and wonder if it couldn't be done with Linux.

Regards,

Although the first part of the link deals with authorizing remote control of your system, "Accessing a Remote Ubuntu Linux Desktop using Vinagre" seems to discuss the reverse, i.e. commandline to connect to the (client's) system thus:
Code:
vinagre ***.***.*.**
ie the ip address of the remote system. Maybe you could experiment by working 2 laptops side by side on your home system, then try a connection to a friend's computer while on the phone to them.
I can't check this out as I have Ubuntu not Fedora. For the ubuntu/debian systems, rfb authorizes remote control, maybe sometimes krfb/grfb depending on your desktop installation, with rdc (or krdc) to connect to the remote system. I use this within my own network. If you can't get a solution within Fedora, I think a dual boot would be worthwhile, doesn't take long to install.
With any remote work (including ftp) I have found that the only problem is the syntax used to connect. I recall that when connecting to a remote computer, the syntax was (ip address or hostname/session no:5900), the first login was session no.0, and so on. I might be getting my : and / mixed.

You need to have remote desktop enable to connect to a remote system using RDP, and or you need to have Remote assistance enable. The difference is that Remote Desktop allows you to connect but only you or someone at the console can operate the computer at one time. Remote assistance allows you to screen share with the user, however, I am not aware of any remote assistance application for linux, you would need a windows host to do remote assistance. VNC will also do what you want but you need to install additional software on the end users PC. Additionally there are cross platform third party solutions but again you need to install software on the other end.
