Can be anything you can run a VNC server on. TightVNC is good enough. Check out their website for the requirements.

do i need to have "vista" running on my PC, or can i use any windows???

@reboot: For gnome, go to System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop. VNC is installed with the default GNOME installation, but not enabled. Check the top two boxes and the bottom two if desired. VNC is a platform-independent protocol... life saver for Linux :D I would not recommend using this client on the iPhone, though. VNsea in the Network category works just as well - I beleive it's the same package, and it doesn't require extra sources.

Does anybody know the default password of thightVNC? It would be so much easier to have tht saved in your iPhone, instead of always havinf to change the password to the choiche you selected.

Hi iclarified, I think many people will have using App problems on 1.1.3. Maybe can use the first time, then the App cannot run again & go to the spring board. Would you make any fixs to fix this problem? Thanks!!
