Connect To Windows

  1. Installing VNC

    • To connect Touchpad Pro v3 with a Windows machine, you first need to have VNC installed. If you've never heard of VNC, follow these steps. Even if you have VNC installed, I highly recommend following these steps, as older versions of VNC have some problems (e.g. dual monitor support is missing from earlier versions).

    1. Go to the TightVNC download page. Donate to them if you can -- they're doing great work. Then download the latest version, as shown here:

    2. Run the installer, clicking through all the steps. Be sure to choose the following options when installing:

    3. Once TightVNC is installed, hover your mouse over the TightVNC icon at the bottom left corner of your Windows screen and write down the IP address that comes up (four numbers separated by dots):

    4. (Optional) Install Touchpad Media Server by following these instructions

  2. Setting up Touchpad Pro

    • On the VNC servers page, click the + icon:

    • Then follow these instructions:

    • Click the Save button.

  3. The session name (e.g. mediapc) will now be added to the list of VNC servers. Tap it to connect.

  4. If you are unable to connect, it's most likely your firewall, or your iPhone is on a different network than your computer. Follow these Windows connection troubleshooting tips to fix the problem.

  5. If all goes well, you should now be connected! Read up on the new controls to learn how to use Touchpad Pro to its full potential.
