HippoRemote Tip #12 – HippoRemoting With No Internet (Windows Edition)

with 2 comments

Yesterday, we showed you how to use your Mac to create a wireless network. On Windows, it’s pretty much the same, though you have to dig a bit more into your network configuration.

Here are links on how to create an ad hoc network for XP and Vista:

Windows XP: Set up a wireless network without a router

How to Set Up Ad Hoc Wireless Network in Windows Vista

Instructions for Windows 7 are basically the same as for Vista. However, it looks like the Public Beta and the RC both have driver bugs that prevent ad hoc networks from working right. Hopefully these bugs have been fixed in the soon-to-be-released final version.

I also strongly recommend installing iTunes or Bonjour for Windows.
Either one, used with HippoVNC, will eliminate the need to fuss with IP addresses.

  1. I tried installing iTunes and using my computer name as the host(i.e. .local) and I still cannot connect to my Windows 7 box. However, if I use the IP Address explicitly, it works fine. Has this feature been removed?

  2. MELBOURNE, Sept 14 (Reuters) – Australia have experienced
    T20 players ready to slot in “seamlessly” in place
    of captain Aaron Finch if required for the World Cup,
    paceman Josh Hazlewood said on Wednesday. Under pressure and out of form with the bat, Finch’s place in the team is under scrutiny
    ahead of Australia’s World Cup title defence on home soil.
    Team mates and selector George Bailey have backed Finch to
    dig himself out of his form slump and lead the team at the global tournament but Hazlewood stopped short of describing the opener’s
    captaincy as essential. Asked how difficult it would be for Australia to have a new captain for the World Cup, Hazlewood said the team had senior players ready to step
    up. “All teams at the moment really feel like they’re quite senior and there’s a lot of guys who sort of take the leadership upon themselves when they’re out there in the middle doing their chosen skill,” he told reporters at the Sydney Cricket
    Ground on Wednesday. “There’s quite a lot of experience out there in the middle and I think it would be quite easy for the next captain to come in and just seamlessly transition.”
    Australia are already looking for a new ODI captain, with Finch having played his last match in the
    format against New Zealand over the weekend. Fast bowler Pat Cummins has
    led the test team since wicketkeeper Tim Paine stepped
    down last year but Hazlewood said Australia might want to look outside
    the quicks for a new white-ball captain. “With the quicks, we´re probably going to rest (from) white ball here and there so it´s not like, I guess, Patty with the test matches playing every game,”
    Hazlewood said. “That could create a reshuffle of captaincy and vice-captaincy all the time. “You probably want someone in there
    who´s stable and playing every game.

    It makes it a lot easier, I think.” While Cummins is favoured to succeed Finch, test vice captain Steve Smith is also seen as a strong candidate. David Warner also hopes to be considered for leadership positions, though he remains banned from them by Cricket Australia for his part in the Newlands ball-tampering scandal.
