TreoTekniques: PalmVNCing Around

Thu Aug 24, 2006 - 12:43 PM EDT - By Xious Sonenberg


If you're a road-warrior, or just generally on the go, and need to access your home machine, VNC is one stellar app. It's about the only way I know to access JAVA, Flash, or JavaScript heavy sites on your Treo reliably. Initial setup tiptoes into geekiness, but once you've got it all working, it's VERY cool. Just make sure you have a 700p and a solid EVDO connection before attempting any serious work.
