Install guacamole in docker. - Install guacamole in docker.

Would you like to be able to log on to your PC or virtual PC from the browser? Would you like to be able to do this via ssh, ssh, RDP or whatever? Then installing guacamole on your nas is the solution. This can easily be done in docker and when it is running you can access the pc or nas you want from your browser.
Code:
docker run \
  -p 8080:8080 \
  -v </path/to/config>:/config \
  oznu/guacamole
After the container is running you can login with guacadmin/guacadmin.

out of curiosity - what advantages does this have over using RDP?

If ports are blocked by firewall you can still connect over ssl (443) when you use reverse proxy and you are not home for example.

So this is a viable option for people who don't own a Synology Router.

ah ok. Makes sense and also mitigates the need for opening 3389 for rdp external.

Nice. Good access to my Win10 Pro PC. I had some "custom scaling" issues initially but those seem resolved w/Chrome. Gotta go back with Edge and retest. Maybe a Teamviewer replacement for me? But darn, that "Shut Down... " menu is still missing.

with reverse proxy in NAS it doesn’t matter what brand of router is in usage, except routers w/o NAT of SSL port - in this case is better such router put into wastebasket

I always find it best, when I need remote Win access, to use RDP. Nothing beats the speed of it. Ofc opening 3389 on the internet is a bit risky, so say the least, but a VPN before that solves that. In my personal experience, this works best.

That's correct but on my work pc I am not allowed to create a VPN connection other then the one of the company and then this is a good solution for me.

Also true. Should have posted, where it can be applied.
