Raspberry Pi is a fully functional computer residing on a printed circuit board less than four inches long. Designed as an educational tool, it has found widespread favor with hobbyists and professionals alike for a dazzling array of uses.
Screens supports Raspberry Pi’s pre-installed RealVNC virtual network computing server, as long as a couple of configuration settings are respected.
Configure Raspberry Pi’s RealVNC Server
