As promised, I'm posting the chart I've made here. This chart compares the features of four really amazing, open source, self hosted remote access and management applications.
Remotely, RustDesk, MeshCentral, and RPort, are absolutely fantastic open source remote access / remote desktop applications. Whether you are building your business on open source tech, or just trying to help out your family and friends with their systems, at least one of these tools will most likely fit your needs. You may be a bit like me, and find that all of them fit certain situations better than others, and just use them all for various things.
I have videos from the past on how to install and get each of these running. The changes for Remotely are just in the image to use when getting the Docker version up and running. Other than that, as far as my testing has gone, those most recent videos for each item, are still valid today.
