ok, so i think that a vnc app would be cool. which one is the best?
EDIT: im using XP home edition
Did you first get a VNC app for your iPod Touch?
I'm saying, what app do I put on my iPod that is the best so I can control my windows xp

ive tried both jaadu and mocha because my dads company uses both, in my opinion jaadu has a much nicer interface and connection screen, in terms of the computrer setup jaadu is amazing, all you need to do is download the setup thing and a VNC client and you're done. No need to port foreward or anything.
Pros and cons of each:
Its got a very good resolution
It has a very good interface
Easy computer setup
It finds nearby connections automatically
Due to the big resolution it needs to refresh lots (you can make the Res smaller)
You need to restart the VNC client on your computer almost every time you want to connect.
It is expensive (£14.99)
i'd give it a 9/10
Although the interface doesnt have as many features the interface is really easy
Its cheaper (£3.49)
Lower resolution causing slight blurryness
Not as many features
A lot of computer setup required (need to port foreward)
It doesnt automatically find nearby connections
i'd give it 5/10 for hassle
In conclusion it that although it is a lot more expensive you would be a lot better going for JaaduVNC because you will find it a lot easier to setup and use.
or for a jailbroken VNC package, search Veency in Cydia.
How hard is it to set up jaadu?
cuz im really only looking to have to install a program on my computer and... VIOLA!
It can be that simple, but chances are you need to port forward, and if you never done that before it can be a bit annoying setting it up.
You would need to port forward, the port 5900, since most VNC programs uses that. If you don't port forward, you will be able to use vnc, but if you try to use VNC from a differnt network it won't work since port 5900 isn't open.
But I would reccommend Mocha, since it is cheaper, and it gets the job done.
On a Mac, all you have to do is tap the auto-detected VNC server (which is built in to Leopard) and hit connect.
