Teamviewer has apparently decided that I’m using for commercial purposes by helping grandparents with their computer problems… and limiting me to sessions about 1 minute long. With a cool down between times I can connect if 2-3 minutes.

Between being periods of access I’m trying to establish an alternate channel.

I looked at paying them a while back.. but after this sort of behavior I think instead it’s time to replace once and for all.

@geekgonecrazy I self-host RustDesk and it's a very pleasant experience

I think them being full open source is fairly recent; the clients have always been open but the server was closed and they were selling subscriptions. I heard it mentioned on a podcast recently and they said it was fully open source which surprised me lol. Looked into it again and quickly set it up on all of mine and my family's machines. Highly recommend it :flan_thumbs:

@amolith I kinda wish it had a p2p mode, where it's not necessary to self-host anything, just rely on DHT of some sort for handshake, much like Tox does.

@drq @amolith looks like it’s using typical webrtc style signaling and hole punch as default. Then falls back to relaying.

At least seems to support encryption key
