Control your desktop from your toilet via your PSP

Control your desktop from your toilet via your PSP

Have you ever been sitting on the pot and wished that you could be checking up on your downloads or maybe even to see if your friend wrote you back. Well wait no more, now you can use your PSP to access your computer completely wirelessly.
You will need:

Sony PSP (1.0 or 1.5 Firmware) USB to Mini USB cable Wireless Router TightVNC 1.2.9 What version of firmware does my PSP have?

To check this go to the Settings tab of your PSP then to System Settings -> System Information you will see a page that looks like this:

Start by connecting your PSP to your PC via your USB to Mini USB cable, after you have connected the cable go to the settings tab in your psp and select “USB Connection”

your psp should now display “USB Connection” in the upper left corner of the screen and “USB Mode” should be displayed in the middle of the screen.

Now your pc should detect your psp and map it as a drive accessible via My Computer.

Now browse to your psp and go to I:PSPGAME if this directory doesn’t excist then you haven’t been doing any homebrew.. so just create the directories. depending on your psp’s version install the corresponding version of pvnc, for me I would copy the content of 1_5 to my I:PSPGAME folder.


Now on your PSP go to the settings tab then to the Power Saving Settings and Turn off “WLAN Power Save” by doing this you use more battery but you get much better performance out of pvnc.

Next we need to configure our PSP to work on our network. to do this we go to the Settings tab then all the way down to “Network Settings” From here select “Infrastructure Mode” then “-New Connection-” name it whatever you want to. On the next page you need to know your SSID, if your network is broadcasting your SSID you can just press the Scan button, here you will also need to input any encryptions your network may have, Assuming we have no encryption and our network is broadcasting our SSID (most factory defaults are set this way) we will select the Scan option and select our wireless network. On the next page titled “Address Settings” YOU MUST SELECT CUSTOM FOR THIS TO WORK WITH PVNC. In IP Address Settings select MANUAL you will be presented with a page that looks like this:
