Why should this be included in the repository? While it isn't open source, it provides a free secure method to remote control/access the computer remotely which can come in handy to access the computer remotely to test stuff, or start a download. Current options/alternatives are TeamViewer (requires payment to remove annoying ad), and VNC (less secure). You also have some more complex options like X-forwarding over SSH, but this isn't friendly on Windows clients or mobile devices.

Is it Open Source (yes/no): No
Who and how many users do you anticipate will use this software? Unsure of the amount of users who will take advantage of the software, I searched and found a few posts of people who have attempted to get it to work, but were unsuccessful.
