Is an update on the way?Since the iPhone 4 resolution is exactly double that of older iPhones in each direction, Veency interprets your mouse position at (320, 480) as the bottom right corner of the iPhone screen. However (320, 480) on an iPhone 4 is actually smack dab in the middle of the display. Therefore, when you put your local cursor in the middle of the iPhone 4 VNC window, Veency puts the remote arrow cursor at the bottom right corner. It's clear that Veency is not aware that the iPhone 4 resolution is not 480 x 320 and the program needs to be updated. For now, just move your cursor halfway from the top left to where you want it to be.
Huh? Look at the iPhone screen to see where the cursor is? That defeats the entire purpose of this app. It's so u can control your phone WITHOUT looking at it... jeez. lolI was also annoyed by the cursor offset problem but I found an acceptable workaround for now. Simply turn ON the remote cursor and turn off the local cursor. Then you see where the pointer really is on the iPhone 4. It's not perfect and there will be a brief moment of disorientation as you move your cursor from your desktop into the VNC client window. Still, it works.
I am using TightVNC Portable 1.3 over WiFi with:
Use 8 bit color
Scale by 50%
Track Remote Cursor Locally
No Local Cursor
I am still hoping that Saurik will update this as well as some of his other apps but no one knows for sure. He has not answered any tweets on the subject so far.
Yes you can. You'll probably need to set up portforwarding on the wifi network the iPhone is connected to so you can VNC inHi, I work offshore and I'm not allowed to bring my phone to work. Big problem for me - I can't check my calls and text messages when I go to work. I thought veency could be a solution, but I only manage to connect to my iphone if computer and iphone are connected to the same wireless network. Is it possible to veency into my iphone while connected to another network?
it's a big pain... lol... best to be on the same network. And if you aren't allowed to have an iphone on the network, you probably aren't allowed to modify the network's IP forwarding, lolYes you can. You'll probably need to set up portforwarding on the wifi network the iPhone is connected to so you can VNC in
It varies by router really but it should be straightforward. Plus he only needs to set up portforwarding for the network the iPhone will be on, which I assume would be the one he has control of.it's a big pain... lol... best to be on the same network. And if you aren't allowed to have an iphone on the network, you probably aren't allowed to modify the network's IP forwarding, lol
