First set up a VNC server on the one computer and then a VNC client on the
other.

Server: http://www.phlamethrower.co.uk/riscos/vnc_serv.php
Client: http://effarig.co.uk/riscos/ (Avalanche)

Both come with an extended help file.

Kind regards,
Paul Sprangers

The performance is going to be very very painful to a Kinetic. Its
pretty awful with an Iyonix, but just about usable with ARMx6 and Pi3Bs.
The Pi4B is the only one I've found which is almost transparent in use.

A Pi4B will be the "master", the Kinetic, which has a NET100 card, will be
the "slave".

I don't know about the Kinetic, but I'm VNC-ing between the Pi4, an ARMiniX
and a Windows 10 PC bidirectionally on a regular base, and it works very
nicely.
