StellarMate is shipped with a VNC Server. This enables you to access the full StellarMate desktop remotely where you can run upgrades, KStars, configure Bluetooth, or change any configurations not available via the App. To connect to VNC, you can either use a Desktop/Mobile VNC Client, or simply via any browser. The VNC address depends on the platform:

Where stellarmate.local is the actual hostname (or IP address) of your unit and 6080 is the port. If you do not know the unit hostname, you can find the hostname in your StellarMate App.

Once you access StellarMate, you can use it like any full-fledged computer.
