Getting Started

RemotePC allows you to access and manage your distant Linux computers anytime, from any device. With an active 
Internet connection, you can connect to your office or home computer from anywhere, as though you are sitting right 
in front of it. You can also invite an associate to access your computer to work on a presentation or help you troubleshoot. 
The remote sessions between your local and remote Linux computers are secured with TLS v 1.2/AES-256 encryption.

  • Real-time remote access to your Linux computers 24/7, from anywhere.
  • Remote access to multiple Linux computers at a time from your web browser.
  • Secure remote access with TLS v 1.2 / AES-256 encryption.
To get started,
  1. Download the RemotePC for Linux package depending on the distribution of your Linux OS. (See system requirements)
  2. Double-click or right-click the package to open the installer and select the package manager to install it on your computer.

If you prefer command line, run these commands:

  • For Debian: apt install  ./remotepc.deb
  • For RPM: yum install  ./remotepc.rpm
    Note: Use ‘dnf’ if ‘yum’ is not available.

Alternatively, you can also run the following commands:
  • For Debian: apt install ~/Downloads/remotepc.deb 
  • For RPM: yum install ~/Downloads/remotepc.rpm
    Note: Use ‘dnf’ if ‘yum’ is not available.

Once you install and run the application, sign up for a RemotePC account.
