Using remote control software to use maptool on tablets?

Post by JasonRoy »

Hello everyone.

Has anyone come up with a solution where a remote control software would be used on android or ios to control the player maptool client running actually on the host ?

I have 2 players in my room with androids devices. I was wondering if from my windows laptop I could:

Start 2 ultra light linux virtual machines on my laptop, containing a matptool client. Use a remote control software like nomachine to give control to the android devices.

We all play in person, and I have one client displayed on the TV, but the players cannot interract with the tokens this way.

It would probably bring my laptop to its knees, but I wonder if anyone as ever succeed.

Should be possible through the existing experimental WebAPI.

If you want to remotely access a user's desktop while they are also connected into the workstation, use the Remote Assistance Protocol (MS-RA). You don't need SCCM Remote Control, the user doesn't have to start the session, and you don't have to install anything on the user's computer.
You can also use MS-RA to access the workstation remotely via RDP while the user is logged in.
