    Just control the desktop - files, reboot, admin

    My Teamviewer is working now thanks to the other thread.

    But you said "Server"... Teamviewer is a Desktop application.

    Hi, It's server SW running on the desktop PC - I access this now with Teamviewer on another laptop. My server language is a loose definition of 'server' as it's not a server from a h/w perspective.

    ssh.

    That is how professionals manage all their servers around the world.
    By default, Ubuntu Server doesn't have any GUI programs, so I'm a bit confused by looking for a "desktop" on a "server" that doesn't have any "desktop".

    Regardless, you should still use ssh.

    If the systems are on the same LAN, than you can use X11-Forwarding, through ssh tunnels. This is trivial. I use it daily, currently, all-the-time. Right now I have 12 windows open on my workstation. 4 are running on the local system, but all the others are using remote X11 though ssh. It is very convenient.

    Learn to work the Unix/Linux way, not the MS-Windows way. You'll be more efficient, more secure and have better integration with your workstation desktop doing this.

    Start here to learn non-GUI management: https://www.linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php That's really a beginner book. At least it is free and current and in many different languages. Of course, you can walk into any bookstore and buy a copy on paper there too, if you want to support the author.

    One of the hardest things for people new to Linux Servers to learn is to change the way they think from "GUI" to non-GUI and setting up automation. Automation is much easier with out any GUI in the way. Automation with a GUI cannot be run without a user logged in. CLI-based automation only needs the computer to be on - no user need be logged in.

    Perhaps a simple example comparing the Windows way and the Linux way. https://blog.jdpfu.com/2012/02/15/be...t-shift-needed
    It really is a different way of thinking.
