0.2b does work fine. Thanks.

Some things I learnt.
- Right click acts as "home" button press
- Escape on the keyboard acts as the "back" button
- Cursor keys work fine.

wow i've been researching and looking into a possible solution to windows mobile mymobiler
www.mymobiler.com before making the complete jump to android and your project looks like a really good solution to mymobiler for me compared to the android screencast app
i was looking around on your blog (added it to my rss feed to keep up) i'm really interested in this
i'm a part time android user (dual boot windows and android 2.2) next time I switch over to android I will definitely install this and check it out with tinyvnc
keep the updates coming great job
and if possible add some of the ideas from mymobiler a lot of people are really interested in seeing a mymobiler for android and it looks like your working on a great solution

Dear lord, this app is FANTASTIC! Works great (though the interface is a tad rough).

And just for fun, I couldn't help but try a camera feedback loop between my laptop & Evo running a VNC connection:

:D

Thanks so much for the app!

If there are much people interested i think i can implement it :)

UPDATE: The app is already on the market, search for vnc server

Very many thousands of users have a Dreambox Dbox or (Linux set-top box, satellite receiver) with VNC client. Look here: www_tuxbox_org

Rotate VNC Window

Does anyone know how to rotate the VNC window (without rotating the entire desktop) for when the phone is in landscape mode?

    Dear Droid VNC Users,

    Here is a 3rd alpha version of droid vnc, it tries to fix all the aforementioned bugs, such as the "link_image[1995]: failed to link androidvncserver CANNOT LINK EXECUTABLE" problem.

    It now tries to auto-detect the best grabber method for your device, so let me know if it is working for you.

    Tegra2 devices should be supported with the "Gralloc" method (which is auto-detected too). And good news, there are some Tegra2 devices that do not need ROOT to access the display.

    Dear Droid VNC users, I am pleased to introduce vnc server 1.0a, an alpha version with the following features:


    - Rotation now fully working (on demand with F4 key)
    - Speed improvements and bug fixes
    - Improved server state detection (using IPC)
    - changed to LibVNCServer from kanaka repository
    - New webserver vnc client (noVNC), uses javascript
    - Ability to make a reverse connection
    - Two new framebuffer access methods (gingerbread and adb)
    - New minimalistic interface


    Please provide feedback on the app, i will release it in the market only when critical bugs are fixed and other features implemented.
    I said previously it would feature non-root access for gingerbread+ devices, and although i've got the implementation working, it seems that only android "system apps" would have the permission to capture the display, THEREFORE, you should need root for all the display grab methods. I am still working on it, but i cannot garantee yet there will be a non-root version of droid vnc.

    Regards,
    José Pereira
