Guacamole project offers desktop access via your Web browser
Linux users looking for a cheap, open source way to access computers remotely should check out the Guacamole project.
According to developers, Guacamole makes use of a server-side VNC-to-XML proxy written in Java and is almost as fast as a native VNC. Guacamole should work within any browser that supports HTML5.
Version 0.2.1 was just released and fixes a bug that affected the clipboard when copying Unicode text. Version 0.2.0 was released Monday. It added scroll wheel and clipboard support.
In addition to the servlet server-side VNC-to-XML proxy mentioned above, a VNC server for X is also necessary.
As the project continues to develop the prospect of being able to access a desktop from any computer remotely without a native VNC program is an exciting one.
Head over the sourceforge.net to grab the code and see for yourself. Guacamole is licensed under AGPL.
