Default Remotely Access my Parents Chromebook

My parents are in their eighties and I am setting up a chromebook for them. I would like to be able to remote access and control their Samsung Chromebook from my WIndows 7 PC to provide tech support for them. I can use Teamviewer and join.me to remotely access my windows 7 pc from the chromebook but not vice versa, read about Ericom Access Now beta a liitle but it seems the same.
This is my parents first experience with a computer so any help/advise is welcome. I also have a couple of eee netbooks running Puppeee Linux and XP.

There are a few solutions for RDP clients on chromebooks, but that isn't the right answer here. I think you'd need an app/extension for this.

I haven't tried it, but this might help:

Tried Vyew, cannot share Chromebook desktop because need Java installed. But Vyew's other features can probably help provide them some technical support. thanks!

I see this as a problem for corporate use of Chromebooks: The inability for a Help Desk to remotely access, troubleshoot and fix Chromebooks. Currently, that may not be a serious shortcoming, but the more the other current shortcoming (off-line applications) gets resolved, then the more important the remote access issue becomes.

This isn't quite the same thing, but if you have a Chromebook yourself, you can sign on as your parent. I do a lot for my parents this way such as creating new bookmarks and changing email settings. It saves a lot of trips over there. I just set up a cloud-ready printer for them, and I can also print to it from my Chromebook at home.
