Title: vnc or other remote desktop possibility?
Post by: yliu on September 27, 2019, 04:11:00 PM
Hello,
   I am wondering if it's possible to install vncserver or other remote desktop tools such that I can control the camera UI on my local computer. I understand that a ssh connection could be established with a usb cable and the camera is running a Linux os. Theoretically if a vnc serve is running on the camera, I could ssh tunnel to the vnc port and securely control the camera. I did try to install realvnc, but the script doesn't work, complaining ending ")" on line 1. It might be the issue of cross-compiling, but I am not sure. Any suggestions for remotely controlling the camera would be appreciated. Thank you!

You'll have to wait until we have the 0.4 beta software release. That is when the ethernet API will be available.
The next best thing that we've put out is the get_latest_video python script. http://forum.krontech.ca/index.php?topic=149
