Please Help with WIFI iPhone App
Hi. I am trying to develop an Iphone app in flash although I really need some help as to where to start with the code. I want to be able to connect to a computer through wireless and be able to access text on the device and computer as well as have access to keyboard input. For the iphone to control the computer. I know this is possible I just need to be pointed in the right direction. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. If I ever complete the app I will post a link to it on this thread as I believe it would be extremely handy to anyone on a computer with an iPhone

First, Flash is not a native development system for iOS. It's translated using Adobe tools:
So the best you could expect is that what you want to accomplish (controlling another computer) is both expressible in Flash, and is supported by Adobe's translator tools. If one or the other isn't true, you're stuck.
(Link found with Google search terms: iphone app in flash. It's worth you doing the search yourself, to see what else is out there.)
Second, the app you describe is basically a VNC client:
These typically use the RFB protocol. If Flash already supports the RFB protocol, then you should be able to make it work. You'd have to refer to the Flash documentation for how to do this, or maybe spend some time searching the web for examples of using RFB from Flash.
If Flash doesn't support the RFB protocol, then you'll have to write that support yourself (assuming it's possible at all), or find a Flash library somewhere on the web that provides RFB protocol for you.
If you know nothing about RFB or network protocols, then you'll have even more studying and developing to do before you even begin writing the actual app.
Third, if you're just going to write a VNC client for iOS, those apps already exist. Google search terms: vnc client iphone
I frankly don't see how writing another VNC client in Flash is a benefit to anyone. You might learn something from the process, but since it would be confined to Flash, which is not a widely used language for iOS, that doesn't seem like a very marketable skill.

There appear to be several dozens of VNC, RDP and even X11 apps that do approximately what you describe already in the iOS App Store. If you had done some research on the idea you would already have found them. You might have even have found some to be based on open source code. Mostly C or C++ code though. Not sure why attempting to do this in Flash on iOS would be of any interest, if even possible, as the difficulty would be high, and the result very slow.
Wifi connectivity would be the least of your concerns.
