I'd like to have seamless control over my computer from my laptop within my home LAN. After seeing this post, it would seem that seamless (no lagginess at all, which VNC introduces) control is possible - but I'm not sure which technologies would work.

I've tried VNC, even with compression on, but there is still a bit of a delay in the frames .

Are any of these "seamless" though? I'm getting my inspiration from and getting the idea that it's possible. I already tried VNC, is it not good enough. – Vadi Oct 3 '12 at 21:36
