    I did a quick search but came up empty, not sure I know how to word what I am looking for properly.

    Is there a way to view my iphone and what I am doing on it through a PC? I have a demonstration to give and I want to show the class what can be done on the iphone - I want to show it through the PC projector.

    Thanks in advance!

    Your phone has to be jailbroken, then you have to download Veency through cydia, and download a vnc client on the windows computer.

    I don't have windows, but I googled it for you, and this might work for the windows vnc client. There are a bunch out there I'm sure. :D

    Download TightVNC on your Computer.
    Once that is done, Go to Cydia on your Springboard and tap "search" Search for Veency and download it. You won't notice anything different after you download it on your phone. Open up TightVNC on your computer and Then Navigate to the Wi-Fi option in Settings. Settings>Wi-Fi>Click the Blue”>” to display your iPhone’s IP Address. Type this IP address into TightVNC and your done.:)

    Awesome! Thanks for the help guys. I have it up and running. I love this site. I hope there is wi-fi where I am teaching the class. Do you guys know if there is an app to accomplish the same thing using the USB sync cable????

    You can use Veency with a cable or without. No need for Wi-Fi

    actually i am pretty sure that veency is similar to ssh where it needs an ip address in order to communicate with the device. you don't necessarily need wifi if you have a mac book, you can create and ad-hoc network and use that.

    I believe it will work the same, using the ipod's wifi.

    Veency can work without wifi *It's easier than you think!*


    I was installing veency and RealVNC for the first time and discovered....
    if you use internet tethering, you have a Wifi IP (???!!!)

    I'm not sure if it is a default IP for internet tethering but it shows up in my Springboard as a Wi-Fi IP address of 192.168.20.1 (even though I'm connected via 3G thru internet tethering)

    Just enter that IP into the server field of VNC viewer and Voila!
    Check out the screenshot of SpringBoard I have attached, take note: wifi is off but there is still a wifi ip address at the bottom :)

    a bit too late

    You can do it through usb using itunnel.exe and modify the shortcut to use the 5900 port eg in the .bat file = "iTunnel.exe 5900 5900"

    and in the vnc client you can just type in the local/loopback ip, 127.0.0.1
