The remote computer has a login/password and i want to save its procedure.

TeamViewer is running from autorun programs on a remote machine and gives me free access, but it does not start until the remote user logs in.

How can i solve it?
Ubuntu 12.04

Do you want to use Teamviewer or are you open to use another remote access solution?. – Javier Rivera Sep 11 '12 at 10:40
I think i want to use it. But i am ready to read about another applications. – Nwbie Sep 11 '12 at 10:42
do you have ssh access to that computer? im using this command ssh -X -C -c blowfish user@ipadress -p port "teamviewer" to start teamviewer remotely – penreturns Sep 11 '12 at 11:20
I can install ssh sever on remote comp, but what about ip address and port? There is router at the office. Is ip address external or internal? – Nwbie Sep 11 '12 at 11:40
normally by default it use port 22. if you not in local network then use public ip. – penreturns Sep 11 '12 at 11:48

I don't know if TeamViewer will allow that, most desktop sharing apps will only work then one user is connected, including the Ubuntu bundled one.

FreeNX is a remote desktop server than can be useful for you. It will ask you for a username and password and open a new session with that user. It's tunnelled under ssh, quite fast and very secure. But it's not as near as easy to configure (read convenient) as TeamViewer: You will need to install the server, install a client on the computers where you are going to connect from, and open port 22 on your router. See this question and this.

Note that after the pain it works really well, we used it at work for a couple of years to let around 20 computers access our server through low-speed ADSL lines and we were very happy with it.
