I want to access my work computer from home(or vice versa). I live in a bandwidth constrained 3rd world country so RDP is too slow to be useful in most cases. Can anyone point me in the direction of doing this efficiently? I am comfortable with using command line utilities.

I would require complete control of the remote computer (administrator privileges/access to registry/ability to restart and reconnect).

If the solution is platform agnostic, it would be better but right now. I really need to connect 2 Windows pcs.

  • You'd imagine that RDP would be the best, no? Have you configured all your rdp options for minimal resource use? Low colours, small screen, etc – Caius Jard Mar 19 at 9:54
  • I'm currently using SSH instead since windows 10 has native support for it now(needs to be enabled in settings). RDP is painful to use even at lowest settings, one of the PCs i need to access is via a 2G mobile connection(50kbps avg) – kkarakk Mar 19 at 10:00

    I think you need to clarify what level of control you need over the remote machine? – Caius Jard Mar 19 at 10:06
  • @CaiusJard it says right there in the question(2nd para) but i'll repeat - I would require complete control of the remote computer (administrator privileges/access to registry/ability to restart and reconnect). – kkarakk Mar 19 at 10:09

    Sorry; you'd mentioned RDP which set me thinking that you need to use the GUI of the remote machine in some way. If all your work could be carried out using command line / file transfer etc and you have SSH working, what are you stil ltrying to achieve that SSH isn't providing – Caius Jard Mar 19 at 10:26
