Fedora MATE remote desktop server

Any recommendations on what to use for a remote desktop server on Fedora 30 MATE?

In Gnome Shell, there is Settings -> Sharing -> Screen Sharing OFF/ON. Though I don’t know what service or software it uses in the background. I don’t find any similar setting in MATE. I tried installing gnome-remote-desktop but I don’t know what it does or how to use it.

For the client, I like remmina. But I haven’t dealt with the server side much at all. If there are other interesting methods, please do mention. I came across Apache Guacamole, but It seems complicated.

I’m not stuck on any particular protocol. Don’t the default remote desktop programs on linux usually use VNC?

Looks neat! I need to read about this.

There are so many to choose from that it’s rather confusing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_remote_desktop_software
