Thanks Bruce.

I avoided Teamviewer because it needs an Internet connection for initial setup. After setup it can be used on a LAN, but I still don't trust Teamviewer to keep the functionality because the LAN functionailty is not a core feature. I like VNC because it is an open standard.

I also played with OpenCPN. It's a community project so I would generally favor it but I have found it easer to manage charts and NMEA data in Polar View. Polar View also tightly integrates Active Captain data. The Active Captain data is invaluable in US waters. I have considered moving to OpenCPN when I move out of US waters. The integration of MX Mariner and OpenCPN is certainly a plus.
