I have been using TeamViewer as a remote-control program for a few years to help friends and friends of friends and never charged anyone for this help; but, Teamviewer is now blocking me from using their program, saying I am using it commercially.

Teamviewer costs $600 per year so I can't afford that for free work.

So now I need a replacement. I need a program that will:
  • Remain on standby 24/7 so that I can log in at any time at will.
  • It needs to give me complete control of the remote system just as though I were sitting in front of the remote computer.
  • It needs to allow me to reboot the system and allow me to log in again after the reboot.
  • Since I don't charge for this work, it needs to be very low cost or free.
  • Those users on the other end will be network illiterate so will not know anything about firewalls or port forwarding.
If you have personal first-hand experience with a program that meet these requirements, please tell me about it.

If you use VNCviewer on the 1st computer and VNCserver on the 2nd then you can control the 2nd computer from the 1st.
