There's no manual or FAQ I've found for the program so I'm not certain if this is the way they intended it to be used. It does work, though, and I can't see an alternative method of using USB. You need ADB installed along with the proper drivers for your device. This varies with platform and phone, so check Google or XDA. Enable USB Debugging on your ...

Rather than a notifier and managing all of this yourself, had you thought about using a Dynamic DNS client? This would allow you to always use the same name to contact your phone over the internet (or even a local LAN) and the 3rd party would manage the problems with changing IP addresses for you. There are a number of Dynamic DNS clients on the Market, I ...

Check if you can connect a mouse (or Keyboard) through USB OTG port (and microUSB-to-USB converter cable)... I'm not sure whether your device supports OTG or not... Just give a try...

You should try LogMeIn - Ignition for Android. I find it much faster than VNC when accessing my Macbook from my Windows PC. I'd image it works just as well with Android.

Yes, but your phone needs to be rooted: Droid VNC With an unrooted phone and other apps you can do certain things like access the SD card, send SMS messages and manage apps, but to gain total control of the device it needs to be rooted. See my related inquiries here and here.

Android VNC viewer is free and works with host names, but I have not played around with it much, so I cannot vouch for quality. Alternatively you could use a hostname to ip resolver (either as an app or as a website) to find out the ip address and use that to connect. I just tried out DNS Lookup from the Android market, and it looks like a pretty decent ...

Use adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.Main -n org.onaips.vnc/.MainActivity outside the shell, and the VNC server will start.

You may use join.me for this. The organizer installs the client on his/ her machine and rest everyone may join in through their web browser.

We just released VMLite VNC Server for Android in Google Play Store. It's first vnc server that works on non-rooted Android devices.

No longer true : So the answer is no. Please see other answers, which give more details how to control an android device without rooting it.

I found out that it's possible to just run vncserver on the client - and it "just works".

No, you cannot change the resolution of Android in VNC in a standard way. However, some Android phones have additional functions to support HDMI (which results in running Android at a higher resolution). If you can somehow tap into that functionality in conjunction with VNC, then you might be able to get a 480p, 720p, and 1080p option. But this is something ...

The app has multiple input modes. In the default, tapping the display moves and clicks the mouse. In another mode, the display acts like a trackpad, so dragging along the screen causes the mouse to move accordingly on the remote system. See the "input modes" sections of the documentation for details. You can change the input mode from the app menu without ...

Yes, if the phone is connected to the internet, you can install apps from the Google Play web interface](https://play.google.com/store/apps) without touching the phone. Starting the app is a different matter, though: you may need to find an app that's specifically designed for this situation, so it can be triggered without needing to open it from the ...

VNC Viewer from RealVNC is a bit pricey ($9.99) but probably has the best keyboard/mouse support of any VNC app on Android.

VNC uses simple protocol, called RFB, you can read more here: http://www.realvnc.com/docs/rfbproto.pdf Basically, it's a simple client/server based network protocol, server listens for clients to connect, once a client is connected, clients send mouse/keyboard information to the server using packets. The server parses the messages, and inject key/mouse to ...

There is a fantastic project underway called Android-VNC-Viewer has several input modes that would capture mouse movements/actions like right click.

Are you sure that the camera isn't damaged as well? IP Webcam has settings for resolution and quality, but I don't see anything indicating that it's tied to the screen of the device. Actually, I'm not sure we're using the same cam app. Maybe it would help to try a different one. I used 'IP Webcam' because I was using mine for video. I'm sure there are ...

I'm not 100% sure but I think it should work with VNC Viewer (paid app but worth its price). I'll give it a try when I'm at home and edit the answer.

Instead of exposing your VNC server to the internet, consider using a VPN. This would secure and encrypt your remote connection. And as a side-benefit, you could save the internal IP address in your Android VNC client.
