Project: Remote Controling my PC


Started on a lil project on Friday to allow me to remote control my PC from my phone when I'm near it, using VB.NET, XAMPP and my phone on a set page. No bluetooth , just regularly polling a command file.

So far I've spent about 2 hours on it and I've got the fundamentals underway, those being un / muting and volume control. I **could** use bluetooth instead but as I'll be in the same range via Wi-Fi this seems to work pretty well with a repeated check every second or so for updated commands.

Looking into adding some other simple features such as visiting a certain url, allowing alt tabbing between programs and Win (left/ right / up / down) , closing programs and shutting down the computer. XAMPP is only visible on my local network so that should be safe from untoward visitors from the internet I would hope.

Sounds like a neat little project.

Yeah, It will be so handy in the evenings when I'm chilling out in the bedroom!

I can see mouse movement being a pain to sort out unless I can toggle the size of the cursor perhaps? We shall see.

Why put so much effort in when there's lots of apps like VNC?

Why reinvent the wheel?
'cos sometimes making your own wheel is fun!

Oh I don't disagree! Just pointing out that there's already a wheel that works (usually).
