I'm trying to do the same thing and the results have not been encouraging. I installed VNC Server on my notebook (the intended car pc), VNC Viewer on my PocketPC and linked the two using an USB cable. I also installed ActiveSync on the notebook so that I can get TCP/IP connectivity working between the two. Using VNC Viewer on the PocketPC, I could control the notebook but its a real pain in the ***. The screen updates are VERY slow - something like 8 seconds so it rules out viewing video on the notebook. Also, scaling is not supported on the standard VNC Viewer for the PocketPC, although I did manage to find a viewer that claimed to support server-side scaling, it did notwork reliably and caused my PocketPC to hang frequently.Originally Posted by malloc
Using a Wifi connection could have helped - the throughput of the USB connection seemed like it was no more than 115kbps. I did try using a Bluetooth connection as well but that sucked - it was even slower than the USB connection and tended to lock up the PocketPC.
If you can write a custom viewer and server that can achieve 12 fps using an USB connection, that would be really, really good !
