    Hi liquid_smoke thanks for the reply, the viewers that I am trying 2 different ones of which are called VNC viewer one I got from the net one I got from a friend and I have also tried VNC view.


    A OSK like from the origami would be incredible! Well except for the sticky prints left on the screen.

    The 6700 has a pretty decent qwerty if you don’t have to type numbers anyway.

    Enforcer Thanks for the input I will look into that, I have been trying to work this out myself but seem a bit uneducated on the topics so struggling to make things happen at the moment.

    It sounds like my guess might have been correct that since terminal services works, so should VNC?

    So maybe the ticket would be to find out what port terminal services is using and try to force it to this channel?

    All the VNC programs (I have seen) set the port to 5900 as you stated, and real VNC does this as well, so maybe I can force it to change ports and this could help for some reason?

    My instincts say this shouldn’t matter, but maybe windows has a special set of exception for the remote desktop/ terminal services port that I am not aware of?

    ive been wanting to tryout the osk on the umpc, but dont have one. I doubt it would be ideal in the car though as its setup for you to type with your two thumbs.

    i would look into any firewalls on your pc like stated, (it should work without that though). The ppc doesn't have a firewall unless you install one, i dont know of any that exist but im sure there are some.

    This is finally working for me and I am ecstatic!!

    Vnc PPC to PC working profile over wifi for use with the xv6700

    This is the software I eventually managed to get working…
    The only things that I had to do to make this work was place a password in ultra vnc (host), and make the port 5901 in the PPC viewer or client. other than that it was just the installation of the exact software linked here.

    Using pocket vnc view (arm) http://home.utah.edu/~mcm5849/wince/vnc.html

    And ultra vnc ultravnc (winvnc) (with a password) http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=63887

    Using ip obtained by:
    Start
    Run
    Cmd
    Ipconfig

    I used the first IP address in the dos prompt, and port in this format for Pocket vnc view (note which requires 1 colon):
    (IPaddress : port)
    xx.x.x.x:5901





    A few notes that I have made are that there is no way out (that I have found)when going into full screen when using source forge viewer http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=128549

    I am working with this now as it seems to be a better more versatile app.

    There is a slight formatting change for the source forge version
    I used the first IP address in the dos prompt, and port in this format for vnc (note which requires 2 colons):
    (IPaddress :: port)
    xx.x.x.x::5901


    For some reason I could not get real vnc realvnc to work for me even when clicking on the legacy tab and using the 3.3 settings which are reportedly required to make it work with a PPC client application?

    Cannot just have usb plugged in, stops vnc from working for some reason (I believe it default connects to the interweb through it, and it seems to breaks down the PPC viewers formatting)

    I really wish the vnc PPC clients had the quick quadrant shortcuts and joystick control like the terminal services client! It works so well and is faster than VNC, but lacks the necessary duel screen operation for me.

    Any clarifications or questions I will be happy to try and facilitate.

    Had I seen this thread earlier, I could have told you it was the port that was missing

    You may also want to look at Innobec SideWindow, if you're using your pocket pc in the car, it allows your ppc to act as another display

    Hey sama can you elaborate a little? “I could have told you it was the port that was missing” what do you mean?

    Are you inferring that real vnc does not work for some reason with the 5900 port assignment in tandem with a PPC?

    I tried realvnc with multiple different ports including 5901 and nothing, real vnc looks like a much better app, would love to iron out the bugs and give it a try if you know something or have any info. But I just cant get it to work for me….



    Also does Innobec SideWindow allow keyboard and joystick inputs to be relayed to the host machine, I do not see any mention of a physical keyboard on a device being used in this manor? Because this was the main focus of my insistence on using VNC was that I could input from PPC and view it from the carPC screen. This eliminated the need for a bulky keyboard, or the need to have a redundant device….plus its kinda cool

    I meant in the first few posts, it looked like you defined the ip address to the ppc viewer, but not the port it should connect to, which you later did by using the colons. It think it was this that didn't let it work.

    Also, if I remember correctly, the dislpay number xxx.xx.xxx.xx:0 is the same as specifiying port 5800, and if you use xxx.xx.xxx.xx:1, that would be the same as 5801. I remeber I had a similar thing when I was tryign to connect my ppc via vnc (about 4 years ago now!)

    Innobec sidewindow is not like vnc, it's a different type of app. But I figured that if you're using a ppc in the car, then it would be good to have it on there too.

    It basically makes your ppc into a second monitor. You can use Yahoo widgest. Have a look here (about half way down).

    I think that if you just press the screen/key when innobec is running, it will revert back to normal ppc mode. So in theory, you could have both your vnc and sidewindow running, and when need to use the keyboard, vnc will kick in, and when you finish, you can create a shortcut on the carpc to start innobec (can be started from the carpc)
