We have been using the self-hosted option for years but its time we moved to the cloud. One option is to host a screenconnect install on a VPS. Digital Ocean has a very cheap , 5$ a month , option.

I am trying to follow this how-to:
https://www.reddit.com/r...creenconnect_selfhosted/

I am able to get to the point of downloading the install file. but when i try to run

tar xzf ./whatevername.tar.gz

it says not in gzip format

I have basically zero experience with Linux but it seemed simple enough to just run a few commands.

We use DigitalOcean with ScreenConnect and found it working quite well. Commands we use to install/upgrade:

wget https://d1kuyuqowve5id.c...2292.6236_Release.tar.gz

tar -xzf ScreenConnect_6.1.12292.6236_Release.tar.gz

sudo ./ScreenConnect_6.1.12292.6236_Install/install.sh

Follow instructions.

Hmm. That's strange. Try running tar -xf ScreenConnect......tar.gz instead of tar -xzf and see what output you get.

I had performance issue on Linux, web gui take long time to refresh/show. Did'nt like the experience. With BuyVM, I have a Windows Server, browsing the web interface is much better.

Just to put this out there for other small-potatoes guys like myself -- I'm self-hosted and didn't like the idea of everything grinding to a halt in case my main PC died. I bought a simple ComputeStick with Win10 for just over $100 and transferred my installation over to it. It's plugged in to a wall socket off in a far corner and, fully setup, doesn't need a keyboard/mouse/monitor. Of course, it's set up with client software so, if I ever need to run an update, I just remote into it and do what needs to be done.
No monthly fee, easy peasy.

We've been trying out the Digital Ocean droplets but like you find the Windoze option easier and quicker. Which Slice option did you go for as it looks like the SLICE 8192 is the SC recommended option?
