I have a MacPro 10.9.1 with OS X Server running on CenturyLink VDSL via ethernet with static IP. I am working with a developer on an ecommerce project with WordPress on Bluehost and a MySQL/Filemaker database backend. The developer can connecto to my server if I allow a session on join.me, but it times out while they are troubleshooting if I am not physically at my server. We tried a vnc connection, but it is very slow despite 20 MBPS.

What other connectivity solutions are available for a client connecting from Windows 7 to OS X Server Mavericks host if join.me and vnc are not working?

GoToMeeting typically works well in this situation. You can also change the presenter and request keyboard and mouse control to effectively reverse who is controlling the remote session.

Does GoToMeeting limit idle time before disconnecting a session? That was the issue with Join.me? I am familiar with it during a webex where all participants remain active, but I don't know about a headless server maintaining connection.

If you have headless server, I use TeamViewer with all of my clients; workstations and servers.

I can reboot the servers remotely and it all works, Macs and Windows.
