    Default Remote Control Java App

    Hello,

    I want to write a very simple java application from scratch to control another computer behind a firewall similar to Teamviewer.com. But in my application, I simply want one-way control from my end to the computer. Both computers are going to be behind firewalls, so that is why I want to make it similar to Teamviewer. So I am thinking I may need a server to register some sort of IDs or IPs or something???

    My thought is that I will need a server. I am thinking to use tcp to control the other computer, while using udp for the upstream display. Should I start learning RMI or am I okay with socket, tcp/udp, etc. I want the connection to be fast and secure.

    I am aware of open source project that does this already like jrdesktop, elusiva, and robo. I really like robo, but it is very old and doesn't work behind a firewall. Thanks.

    Best Regards,

    Tip: Using windows media server and .net you can easily do this. But not with Java :(

    I forget that. Actually if you just looking an application to get work done, VNC have a Java client for application/desktop sharing. Sorry I don't have a link with me to send you right now, search on Google. You can easily find it.

    Thanks for that Eranga. I am trying to stay away from Windows. Forgot to mention in my post that I need this solution for Linux. Thanks again.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks again for that, but the reason I didn't want to use vnc is because it doesn't work behind a firewall. The only to make it work is to do a lot of port forwarding on routers, etc. I just want a simple solution like writing my own application.

    Best Regards,
