My main pc is a W7 ubuntu dual boot and my HTPC is i5 NUC running W8.1

I'm going to install weather station display software which shares the data and uploads to my webpage on the HTPC machine as it's on all the time but I want to connect to it from my main pc.

What is the best software ?

you could just remote desktop in if you are running windows 8 pro or higher. Otherwise I would recommend teamviewer

Chrome remote desktop, VNC, Teamviewer, Windows RDP... sooo many to choose from.
Personally, I used to use VNC, now use Chrome.

I had a quick look and found too meany options but I thought I would throw it open to the hivemind.

Team viewer and VNC will be looked at. Windows 8.1 machine is just running Home version

As long as I can fiddle with the web creation aspects of the weather station software over the LAN I'm happy.

Im trying to avoid having to unplug htpc from the cable nest and take it to another room every time I want to install / modify software on it

RDP is the most efficient (read: fast/usable) protocol, but if that's unavailable, Teamviewer works well. VNC is universal, but hideously inefficient. Should be okay on a LAN, of course.
