Display a Raspbian desktop on Android using VNC is a client/server (Unix) windowing system developed by MIT/DEC.

You can run graphical applications on Linux clients and servers.

Applications

Display a Raspbian desktop on Android

  • Install an RPi VNC Server on a Raspberry Pi (tightvncserver)
  • Install the "bVNC: Secure VNC Viewer" App on Android
  • Start the vncserver on Raspbian (choose credentials)
  • Start bVNC on Android (use credentials)

Your session keeps on running even after the network is disconnected.

Note:

  • Verify the TCP port used by the VNC server (may vary)
  • Take care to properly configure your firewall accordingly.
  • You do not (normally) have a mouse on Android which can be unhandy; possibly a USB on-the-go cable could be a solution
