Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. Have you considered trying TeamViewer? With that, you could remotely connect to whatever device you are using to control the rover from any computer or smart phone.
I think that would make it harder than it needs to be. If you use TeamViewer, as long as you have some type of network connection, you should have control of the rover.
If you install TeamViewer on the iphone, that gives you a remote link just as if you were holding the iphone in your hand no matter where you are.
You will actually see the iphone desktop on the computer you connect to it from.
TeamViewer if a free app. Since the rover is controlled by an app written for iphone and android, I don't see any way to control it without one or the other of them being used for a link.
It does look like a fun device though!!
Have you had a chance to check out TeamViewer?
You control the rover now from the iphone without doing anything other than installing the app right?
Go to this LINK and you will see what I am talking about for your iphone.
Now locate TeamViewer Quick Support from your app store and install it on your phone. It will have an ID number attached to it. That is the number you will need to enter into TeamViewer from your computer. Follow the on screen prompts then let me know.
Sorry for the delay. You can access TeamViewer regardless of where you are. Think of it like a long extension of your arm. You are at work and are reaching out and holding your ipad and controlling it as though you were setting right in the room with it.
As long as the ipad is on, you will have a connection, so yes you will leave it on.
No. Once you see how it works it will all make sense to you. If possible, just try remoting in now and you can see what it can do. I use it just to clean up some of the junk on my phone so I don't have to do it using the small touch screen. That way I have a keyboard and mouse I can use to manipulate files on my phone.
I will be off line for a few minutes, so if you have more questions, just post them and I will respond as soon as I come back.
Please do, I will be anxious to hear how you come out.
Have you decided to use your ipad rather than your iphone at home?
My apologies as I forgot about the security measures included for the smart phones. The only way to connect to a phone is to have someone actually accept the remote connection when it is requested by the remote operator. It is a different story however when using the full version of TeamViewer on either a Mac or PC. On a computer or tablet, you can set TeamViewer to what is called unattended access. As long as your computer or tablet is powered up and running, you will be able to remote into it. If you want to play now and have anyone around where your iphone is, just have them watch it while you try to access it and when the prompt appears, they can tap accept and that will get you right in. Again, sorry for the confusion!
There are some phones you have to purchase the license version for and others you don't. I can't figure that out, but that screen shot is one of the restricted versions. When you actually have full access, you would see your phone's desktop right from your computer and could then pick and choose whatever app you wanted to run. Some folks have hacked their iphones and have TeamViewer working but that is another story. If you go to the ipad, you won't have any problem and you can use the unattended feature as well.
Just checking in to see if you had a chance to work with your ipad? Let me know how things are going.
Did you install the full version of TeamViewer on the ipad? If so, you will need to set it up for unattended access.
Please do. Once you have that setup, then you should be okay. I can help walk you through it if you need assistance.
One more thought. You may have to jailbreak your ipad to get full functionality.
Just check the link I sent.
Okay, let me know.
Just checking in to see how you came out?
