This may be of interest to some, especially the version with no server in the loop!

Screenshot 2024 05 07 at 10.35.56

First computer 1959. Retired from my own computer company 2004.
Hardware - Expert in 1401, and 360, fairly knowledge in PC plus numerous MPU's and MCU's
Major Languages - Machine language, 360 Macro Assembler, Intel Assembler, PL/I and PL1, Pascal, Basic, C plus numerous job control and scripting languages.
My personal scorecard is now 1 PC hardware fix (circa 1982), 1 open source fix (at age 82), and 2 zero day bugs in a major OS.

Ron, @zander .. An interesting spot!

For anyone who might be interested, the clip is from https://www.raspberrypi.com/news/raspberry-pi-connect/

and it includes:

First of all, Raspberry Pi Connect needs your Raspberry Pi to be running a 64-bit distribution of Raspberry Pi OS Bookworm that uses the Wayland window server. This in turn means that, for now, you’ll need a Raspberry Pi 5, Raspberry Pi 4, or Raspberry Pi 400.

followed by installation instructions and description.

I will probably explore this in the future. I currently use Real VNC from my main work station to connect to multiple Pis. With Real VNC, I can also connect to other non-pi computers too. If I switched to Pi Connect, it would exclude all the non-pi machines, so not sure I want to bi-furcate my remoting viewer session into two different groups. But for someone who uses mostly, or exclusively, remote Pis, seems like a great option. (especially the option of connection when away from local LAN, I might try that option..)

Imagine by thought, create, don't wait, Scott.

@whitneydesignlabs Remember, this is for NON Lan use, while VNC is only LAN.

Yes, I saw this earlier today on Toms Hardware. Great suggestion; it is approved!
