How can I access one (or multiple) android devices running boinc, remotely (on the same Ethernet connection)?
Each device runs Android between version 4.4.1 and 9.1.
The receiving device (the one my monitor is plugged into), will run either Android or Linux (not Windows).

All will access the same unmanaged 24 port Ethernet switch.

You can use add-ons such as BOINCTasks Mobile (requires Windows) and AndroBOINC
Please do not private message me for tech support, these will be ignored!

1) Was not aware of AndroBOINC. Went there and looked around and found screenshots
https://code.google.com/archive/p/androboinc/wikis/ScreenShots.wiki

they will not display even with JavaScript enabled on Google's chrome. Edge requires a policy change to run JavaScript and I suspect the problem is something else. /svn/www/projects.png is not a valid URL, it is folder. I tried the export to GitHub but that failed.

Where can I see screen shots? I do not have android devices.

2) I use splashtop to access the windows system running Boinctasks. Probably not much different than using mobile boinctasks on iPad under safari except the tiny screen on the iPhone requires zoom and panning. $10 a year gets me remote access from anywhere, not just the subnet.

Any Linux ports from this program?
The PC side is not the issue.
The issue is the boinc Android devices not forwarding vnc
