VNC or Virtual Network Computing is a popular way of being able to view a desktop on a remote computer over either an local network or via the internet.

There are also a couple of different server methods, the most common is replicating what is on the screen. Others include creating a virtual screen just for a VNC connection or monitors that are VNC clients.

For this tutorial we will be using the VNC server called Vino. We found this one currently the best from where it works with Pygame & Scratch. Our previous tutorials used TightVNC viewer which no longer works with scratch.

Vino uses the method where it views the desktop it is on and doesn't start up its own server. Its also slightly easier to set-up as well. It doesn't work with Minecraft but is good enough for most uses we require it for.

Installing the server

For this guide you will need to use a Pi plugged into a monitor with a keyboard and mouse to begin with.

Start by opening up Lxterminal (Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal) and then type in the command "sudo apt-et install vino"

This will then go ahead and install
