Android VNC Server 0.2
If you want to be able to access your phone remotely, you may want to try out Android VNC Server, developed by XDA forum member onaips.
The app lets you connect to your Android device remotely via WiFi or USB. Connecting via USB requires port 5901 forwarding from device to PC using the following adb command –> adb forward tcp:5901 tcp:5901, then connect to localhost:5901 from your VNC client.
Features of Android VNC Server include:
- GUI to start/stop server and set password
- Set password to access
- Input events are handled by uinput (no need to manually set devices)
The app is available to download free in the Market. For more information, visit the application thread.
