PocketVNC Server v1.4.0.0
Requirements: PDA with WM5/PPC2k3/PPC2k2 (WM6?)
Computer with a VNC client (preferably UltraVNC)
W/LAN Connection
Overview: The PocketVNC server was implemented to offer the functionality of a VNC server running on a PocketPC device. The project was inspired by the SynCE project, that offers an open source synchronisation solution between Linux Desktops and WindowsCE clients.



The PocketVNC project is no port of the original open source VNC server for Windows, instead it is a complete new implementation on the PocketPC platform. The Hextile encoding algorithm used in the original RealVNC Server was changed to offer more performance on mobile devices. The PocketVNC Server offers following functionality:

  • Raw Encoding (quite slow according to the network bandwidth)
  • Hextile Encoding (good performance according to the bandwidth and to the processor time used)
  • Both Encoding styles are offered with 8bit and 16bit pixel depth. Reducing the images to 8bit pixels offers a really good performance over LAN and WLAN and an acceptable performance over Bluetooth connections.
  • Filetransfer in combination with UltraVNC VNC clients!

The PocketVNC server was tested on following devices:

  • Sprint PPC 6700, Windows Mobile 5.0
  • HP iPAQ RX3716, ARM PocketPC 2003 Pro device, internal WLAN and Bluetooth interface
  • T-Mobile MDA, ARM PocketPC 2003 device, SanDisk Wi-Fi SD WLAN Karte 802.11b
  • HP iPAQ 4155, ARM PocketPC 2003 device, integrated WLAN
  • FS Loox 600, ARM PocketPC 2002 device, Symbol Wireless SD card
  • HP t5000, X86 WindowsCE.NET 4.2 thin client device, wired LAN

Known issues:
Some vnc clients make the server crash when running other color mode than low color mode. Also make sure the client connects using hextile encoding and that it does not change color mode when connected.
Encoding problems often results in the server crashing, which could result in odd behaviour of the Pocket PC (fixed by soft-reset)

Code: Select all

Download Instructions: Download, put exe on pda, run.


edit. Fixed images (I hope :shock: )

Greetings; thanks much for your work, saddly this does not work on my old iPAQ 3760. Too bad I am looking for something like this, I have LAN software on it right now but it's shareware and the crack here doesn't work on it either. Sure is nice though to be able to lay in bed and watch the TV shows I downloaded on my main PC over the wireless network, guess I will have to find a sn or something for the one I have that does work.
