I'm currently using Google Chrome Remote Assistance, which so far is the
best compromise I've seen for a situation where a set of known devices
are accessed regularly (as opposed to one-off connections). I'm using it
with laptops/desktops running Lubuntu and Windows. I don't know about
It's not as good as Chrome Remote Desktop (which is not offered on
Linux), in that it requires the user to start the host program (which
can be a bookmark in Chrome, or a desktop shortcut), issue an
invitation, and give you an access code.
But the performance is better than any VNC-based solution I know of, and
I don't have to set up and run some sort of an access server.
In the past I have used Intel Mesh, which doesn't require user
intervention on the host machine, but I have not been able to get it
working under Lubuntu 14.04.
