Anybody know of any open source remote desktop software that allows one to easily help non-technical friends and family? Everybody's on Linux.

Traversing NAT is the major problem, so I'm happy to run my own relay server.

Just can't find any open source stuff that will work that way. I can't explain how to forward ports to my mom; she needs a non-technical way to invite me to help.

(TeamViewer, AnyDesk, etc. are proprietary clients with proprietary servers, so I don't trust the privacy there).


@winduptoy i'm using currently, but i think the exe is not opensourced either, and sharing only works windows > linux...
