There is Teamviewer it-self. http://www.teamviewer.com/.

Otherwise there is Open-source alternative. Look at some client for RDP protocol, or VNC protocol.

Teamviewer works on Ubuntu too. download for the 32 bit version or the 64 bit version. So if you like that as remote desktop software you can still use it ;)

But if you really want an alternative I suggest to take a look at VNC. But the server side as the client side are easy to get working.

The official TeamViewer port for Ubuntu is a Wine wrapped program. It works as expected though, so you should try that!

I'd try VNC as mentioned above or ScreenConnect.

TeamViewer allows for use behind IS firewall and so. That is the key part of its funcion. All comments above seem to forget about that and suggest VNC or so - which works, but ONLY if You get access to firewall/routers in path. Yes TeamViewer uses Wine. That is the reason to look for ALTERNATIVE FOR UBUNTU. The one which let me connect behind firewall of my ISP that I can not control in any way. It would be nice to log in using Ubuntu Single Signon and be able to use any kind of VNC (SSH and anything through it seems to me best) to reach computer without public IP.
