iPhone VNC Review Please

TurnipTruckTurnipTruck Junior MemberPosts: 1,485

With all of the talk lately about iPhones and G4 panels, the signal to noise ratio has gotten a bit low.

I'm just about to get an iPhone, and I would like to find a VNC application that is working and would serve as a place for me to start for remote-controlling G4 panels.

    VNC review

    I've tested Mocha (in its paid for form) and had no joy. It's possible to get through the Negotiating Connection message by reducing the number of colours. The G4 panel shows a connection but the iPod displays a black screen...

    ...but the good news is that the Teleporter application (It's now got a new name Jaadu VNC) works perfectly.

    It's quite snappy, handles scaling well. I lke it.

    The only issue that I've seen is the number of times it gives a low system resources message. It certainly pays to do force quits from Safari, Mail and iPod if you're planning to use it. Apart from that it's good. In the UK it costs £17.99

    We're logging in a CV10 at home via VNC for iPhone downloaded at the AppStore and it works perfect.

    PS: It's free too... :O)

    What is the name of the vnc software
  • adimexadimex Junior Member Posts: 21
    The Mocha VNC Lite 1.1.. The free one...
    You need to enable 32bits color mode. If you do not, it will fail to connect. There is no crazy configuration required on the touch panel.

    I'll send u the firmware and config of the touch panel/network. I can't do it now since I'm at AMX East and I'll be back home on Friday.

    I also have the first gen of iPhone (the obsolete 4GB)... I don't think that makes a difference.

    I've messed around a little with vnc'ing to a panel. I have my blackberry controlling a mvp8400 using VNC+. It works but the lack of touchscreen on the blackberry makes control a pain.

    I have Jaadu set up on my iPod touch which works fine but I'm not a big fan of the mouse pointer that you have to use to make clicks or button presses, (those of u that have tried this program will know what I mean). Having said that I'm getting used to it.

    I also tried the Mocha Lite app and, like others here, I can get the panel connected and can control it I just don't get any video display of the panel just a black screen. I can connect to my mac and pc with no problems using mocha though.

    This is the same situation here. A blank window shows that can be dragged around, but no screen image. I have the first iPhone and have tried several VNC apps with the same result.

    Any ideas?

    Anyone see the latest AMX newsletter? Looks like Virtual Keypad is coming for the iphone direct from AMX.

    It seems with the virtual keypad you can only use a few buttons. With the vnc client that I have installed you can control full panels.
