    Arrow REALVNC + VNCviewer for PPC ?

    Hi guys I am working on making a XV6700/PPC6700 work as a keyboard for my setup using VNC and was wondering if someone would take the time to tell me if I am going about it correctly.

    I can make it work from desktop to desktop, but am having trouble making it work from pocket pc to desktop.

    Can someone tell me what software they are using and any pertinent changes or settings that will help me make this work.

    Right now I am trying to use real VNC for the server (controlled PC) and VNC viewer for the PPC (controller)

    I am pretty sure I have the right numbers inputted into server: and password: for VNC viewer, but it keeps saying “unable to connect to the specified server!”

    Do I need to set it up in some way other than just enter my server number and password?

    If you have a firewall on either machine disable it, by default windows firewall is enabled with SP2.

    VNC server runs as a service on the client achine make sure the service is started and running.

    Make sure that both your machines are on the same subnet and have the same subnet mask and gateway specified in the ip network settings. You can verify this by disabling the firewall on both machines and try to ping one another. If it works then your ip setting are fine and it is probable something to do with VNC try uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Also I can make terminal service work fine, so doesn’t this tell me that it must be able to do the communication OK ?


    What I do know right now is:

    Firewall is off on the server machine

    Using start run cmd ipconfig
    I can get my IP subnet and gateway for the client server machine

    I can ping the PPC with the IP that is supplied in the wireless LAN settings, and it appears to be OK

    The only thing I know how to find on the PPC is ip (though, like I said it seems to connect through terminal service so I think it is OK)

    Readout from server machine for local network in dos (this looks to be working fine?) does it look right?

    PPC IP 10.0.1.3:

    I know this seems dead simple to most, but I have been fighting it for a while and I need help figuring out what is wrong, or at least someone to confirm what I am doing is correct.


    While I am on the subject of remote access, is VNC the best way to make a remote connection?

    Are there any advanced solutions that would allow video by means of faster refresh rate?

    I don't know if VNC is the best or not. I guess if you mean free probably so.

    I use it on my home network religiously. However, I tried Remote2PC for the connection between my PPC6600 and my CarPC. There is a thread here that goes into some detail about it.

    The fact that its a commercial product tend to turn some people off, but c'mon guys $14.95 is no money, hell I spend more than that on a haircut. And actually the support is more than worth it, they've helped me work through two issues I had early on via email and phone.

    Thanks for the input guys, can anyone take the time to just confirm that the ping looks normal and that I should only need to enter IP and password when using vnc viewer with real vnc?



    Again I don’t understand why it would work from one desktop to the other, yet not from the PPC to the desktop just as easily????

    I guess I know VNC is working, I just need input on anything to check with the PPC as it seems to be the broken link.

    I can and have initiated VNC on multiple machines in the local network, but cannot get that pesky PPC to work which is the whole reason behind the effort!!


    VNC works pretty much the same way remote desktop does correct?
    Wouldn’t this tell me the paths are correct and compatible to use VNC if RD works with the PPC??



    Does anyone know if the 6700 runs .net compact framework 1.0 or greater?

    im not sure what ppc vnc viewer you are using , but the one i have(vncview) has 2 popups to connect to a server.

    First pop up ask for server name/IP and screen to view incase you have dual monitors. should look like this

    computername:0

    0 is the default main monitor, secondary monitor would be 1

    Second popup is for password etc.

    there is a newer version of the app in the link, not on that page though, have to google it.



    One thing i started thinking about from reading your post, and what i initially thought you were trying to do. Is if there were a ppc app that was just a simple fullscreen osk on the pda, that sent all keystrokes to another computer via wifi. Id toss my physical keyboard in the trunk for something like that.
    01101100 01101001 01110001 01110101 01101001 01100100 01011111 01110011
    01101101 01101111 01101011 01100101

    It could be what has been mentioned before. If the PPC has a firewall setup, it may be setup to only allow certain ports, terminal Server uses a different port to VNC, so it is possible to have one work and not another.

    Look into firewalls on PPC's and see if there is one set up, if there is, you need to allow access to TCP port 5900 for VNC to work.
