I have to compare different remote desktop solutions from Windows to Debian server (headless).
For the tests, I use a Debian 10 VPS with LXDE as GUI.
I can successfully access it with Windows Terminal Server from Windows 8.1 (xrdp) + Open VPN and use Firefox.
I can successfully access it with X2go + SSH tunnel and use Firefox.
Alas, I have big problems with TeamViewer 15.9.4 x86_64bit ! :o(
Under an SSH session, I've done, as root:
# wget https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/teamviewer_amd64.deb
# apt-get install ./teamviewer_amd64.deb
# /usr/bin/teamviewer info
TeamViewer 15.9.5 (DEB)

"Unknown reason" : that's very helpful ! :(
I'm sure the password is good: it's the same I used to login to this forum.
What is this "Unknown reason" ? How can I solve the problem ?
I can give you any useful additional info.
I hope someone will help me so I won't be sad to remove Teamviewer from the list of potential nice solutions for remote desktop.
