I am looking for a Remote Access software similar to Teamviewer for Raspbian. Although Teamviewer has a Linux client, it's only for x86/x64 and not ARM. Although GUI controlling would be nice, I would settle for command line access (shell).

I tested with TightVNC and it works fine. Unfortunately my Raspberry Pi would not have a static IP. So I installed a dynamic DNS client. Although this is working fine, it would not let me access it without port forwarding on my router. This will be placed at a site where I will not be able to change router configuration.

My requirements for the software are

  • Should run on Raspbian
  • Support ARM architecture
  • Ideally should not require port forwarding on router
  • GUI/Shell access (SSH ?)

I ended up using the instructions provided here and here

Summary is.

  1. Install Hamachi for Raspbian (Use logmein-hamachi-2.1.0.101-armel as the latest version does not work)

  2. Create network using your LogMeIn Account.

  3. Install Hamachi client for Windows
  4. Install x11vnc/SSH
  5. Get the IP Address using Hamachi Client and use putty for SSH or VNC Viewer for VNC.

So it's basically Hamachi + SSH/VNC.

  • Corray - Does Hamachi only help get the IP or can it work around firewall/ port issues the way TeamViewer does? PS: Any alternatives to Hamachi? – Alex S Aug 24 '16 at 7:37
