Access Your PC Via PS3 With VNC Viewer

March 16, 2013

Here is another great port for PlayStation 3 custom firmware users. Developer nicogrx has released VNC Viewer which allows you to access your Linux or Windows computer via your PS3. Reading over at PS3Hax it seems this needs to be resigned for custom firmware 4.xx users, so do report back if it does not run on the CFW you are using. The developer also mentions a reduction in speed when connected to Windows 7 and is willing to release the source should someone be interested in advancing this application.


A very basic vnc viewer for the ps3.

Did that stuff 2 years ago for my personal usage and i finally decided to share it. Works fine when connected to my ubuntu box running vnc4server.
It run slower when connected to a windows 7 machine. Do not ask me why

Only 32bpp mode is supported with hextile, rre, copyrect & raw rfb encodings. There are probably many things to improve in the code to get it running faster but i have no time to spend on that right now. I might release the code on github if somebody request it.

Use a usb mouse & keyboard for a better experience.
Of course, it is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind.

PS: Thanks to the great guys that brought the psl1ght toolchain and the SDL porting to the open community.
