RustDesk is an open-source solution designed for remote control capabilities, enabling you to establish your very own server to facilitate connections across various locations. This system offers flexibility, allowing you to either run it through Docker or perform a direct installation on your chosen device.

Impressively, RustDesk has garnered significant attention, garnering more than 45,000 stars on GitHub and achieving an impressive installation count of around 2 million instances. This popularity underscores its effectiveness and appeal within the community.

Notably, security is a paramount concern for RustDesk. It grants you the ability to tailor its deployment according to your preferences, thereby eliminating the necessity of exposing it to the broader internet. Moreover, you retain the authority to regulate access to your server, ensuring that you have control over who can establish connections and when they are permitted to do so. This robust emphasis on security provides users with a heightened sense of autonomy over their remote connections, making RustDesk a reliable choice for managing remote access.
