    I'm wondering how to set a VNC server with Ubuntu and view it with WiiVNC. Does anyone know how to do so? Thanks in advance!

    I'm running on Ubuntu 11.04, and my Wii's on 4.3, if that makes a difference...

    Try using Vino in ubuntu as the VNC server. Just type this in at the terminal:-

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install vino
    That worked for me, but I found lag on my home network to make it practically unusable for anything. I might have to give it another go now I have a better router...
