I use the free version of Wyse Pocket Cloud. It works very well.

I wouldn't expect any video apps to work. The refresh rate wouldn't be high enough.

I tried hooking up pocketcloud, but I cant seem to get it to work at all?


I read around, and tried phonemypc, and it hooked up flawlessly. But it appears pocketcloud would be the better option.

I will try and tinker with it some more, or hopefully find a tutorial lol

i've not tried the remote desktop yet, but as far as Netflix goes:

At the moment you need Silverlight with DRM built in. Only runs on Windows, not Linux (even with Moonlight, a Linux alternative). Too bad for now. I'd love that.

LogMe in... works... im not a huge fan of it. I have an iPhone where i use logmein and its VERY smooth. I try and use logmein on the archos and its a bit quirky, doesnt respond... i requested a refund but no word yet.

I would really like to try a RDP service for my 101. What are peoples thoughts on the best of them. I would like it to hook up to my Windows Xp and Vista machines. What would you recommend? Do I need to install software on my PC's as well or is the app alone sufficient?

I use PocketCloud to connect to a Windows 7 Home machine running TightVNC server and also use it to connect to a Window XP Pro machine with RDP. It work very well for both connection protocols.

As for software on your PCs, if you have the Home versions of Windows RDP is not built in, which is why I installed TightVNC server on my Windows 7 Home box, Windows XP Pro comes with RDP enabled by default so no software needed there.

android-vnc-viewer is very good (free and open source), but the version in the Market is not the most current (with fixes for many issues). You can get the latest development version here: androidVNC_build20101119.apk.

I've gotten into the habit of checking the 'official website' link when I run into issues. I don't know why the fixed versions aren't pushed to the market, but at least they are available.

You may try R-HUB remote support server.
