Question Ubuntu on Android help/question

Hi, I have installed Ubuntu successfully per their instructions and all but the thing I cannot get to work is the AndroidVNC app?What specifically goes in each field. Ubuntu says "DNS" in the host field but even that is wrong. I put my known DNS in there and still an error. And what is this username and password? I have no account to begin with that I know of so what are they wanting an account name for? Again, this is the AndroidVNC app I am talking about. Also, can someone clarify exactly what is the VNC do with regards to Ubuntu on there? Do I need to reboot if I get the VNC successful?

Have you configured the VNC server on Ubuntu? If not, that will have to be done before any of this will work. Here is a How To to point you in the right direction.


This is for CentOs, you might need to google for a How To tailored to Ubuntu.

Once the server is configured, then many of the questions you are asking will have obvious answers.

Here is a link for Ubuntu.
