you could use:
anydesk (not in MXPI yet) ( https://anydesk.com/ )
or those installable with MXPI;
teamviewer
1-to-1assistance
nomachine
I do personaly prefere anydesk, as it always works, with some clicks only.

ssh-conduit-antiX is also a choice, including a vpn and filesharing across networks. Note you'll need to do some port forwarding on the local routers to make it work, but it doesn't require any third-parties to host the connection.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Arrg, yes of course. This is an excellent tool. And the video provided is highly recommended :number1:
To my excuse, I always can't remember the name 'ssh-conduit-antiX' , as it seems to be as non-native English somehow lost to remember.
Suggest: To add this to MXPI popular apps under Remote Access ;)

Hmmm. Are you trying to connect the networks themselves (called "bridging")? Or are you trying to do a point-to-point communication between two MX 17 machines?

MX has very nice builtin-in P2P tools as Felix and DO have mentioned. I use VNC over SSH every day. Works great. As DO mentioned, you'll need to forward 1 port on the router that is accepting the incoming connection, and it's easiest if you give the MX machine on that network a static IP. You'll also find it convenient to have an account on a service like DynDNS for resolving the incoming connection IP at the router. Otherwise, you'll have to do some rigging to discover the "server's" IP address.

If you are wanting to bridge two LANs over a VPN, there are commercial routers that will do this. If you have a lot of cash, the network carriers can build you this network at most any SLA you want. (full disclosure: I work for such a provider).

I have seen a couple of OTS consumer routers rigged into a VPN-bridged config using the excellent OpenWRT firmware.
https://openwrt.org/

You can also rig a couple of computers with dual network cards into a bridged LAN setup by making them into router/firewalls using distros that specialize in router services. IPFire and VyOS jump to mind. Here are several from Distrowatch:

The easiest setups are often something like the simple Desktop sharing in Zoom , Skype or similar. If you are trying to do remote systems management, then things get a bit more complicated (sometimes a 'lot bit'). :lipsrsealed:

Depending on your objectives, here are some thoughts, options, ideas:

We started a Wiki article on this topic after testing by mmikeinsantarosa:

This seems like a good time for me to work on it.

Thanks lot of advice :) will try them out.
Its my son,s computer,he is only user and have not even the login password,as he has sadly some mental problems.
