    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:

    Jaadu Pros:

    Its got a very good resolution
    It has a very good interface
    Easy computer setup
    Easy connection
    It finds nearby connections automatically


    Cons:

    Due to the big resolution it needs to refresh lots (you can make the Res smaller)
    Its slow
    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

    MochaVNC Pros:

    Its fast
    Although the interface doesnt have as many features the interface is really easy
    Its cheaper (£3.49)

    Cons:

    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.

    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.
