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.

In addition to the web-based VNC viewer, you can use Real VNC which is available on all desktop & mobile platforms. For RealVNC, use port 5900.

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

Default username: stellarmate
Default password: smate

TeamViewer is also installed on StellarMate OS. It is primiarly used to aid in troubleshooting StellarMate OS remotely. You need to sign up for a free TeamViewer account to activate it. Once activated, you can use TeamViewer client to access StellarMate OS as well.

You need to edit the link text above for the MacOS/iOS example. The text on the page SAYS "stellarmate.local:6080/vnc.html" but the link that the text goes to is "http://stellarmate_hostname:6088/vnc.html"
That is very confusing for a first-time user. Guest @ 2018-12-18, 00:45
New Connection with RealVNC. The port used is 5900 - in expert options add username: stellarmate Willem @ 2018-08-09, 22:58
I was unable to connect using the built in VNC client on the Mac, nor realVNC. Only able to connect using a web browser with http:// prefix. Careful because you web browser will not work on the link above and then I found it dropped the prefix on subsequent attempts. Guest @ 2017-11-04, 08:35
The address is not as above. It is:
