    VNC from Android device to the Pi

    I'm running the latest Wheezy on the Pi and have a vnc server installed which I can connect to from my Linux mint laptop with no issues. However, I cant connect from either my S3 or Nexus 7, I have tried loads of different vnc apps and none will connect, im using the correct ip and port numbers but just keep getting connection refused.
    Has anyone got vnc working from an android device to their Pi and if so what software combos are you using.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried RDP? I have had exactly the same issues with that too, works from Mint but not Android.

    Nope - just tried it a few times so I could use a phone/tablet to talk to my RPi Robots to save using a laptop
