How can I control a PC from an Android tablet please?

By lists ·
I have an oldish Dell laptop running XP on my boat. It is used as the navigation computer and displays charts giving current position on the chart plus useful information. Some requires me to click on a target on the chart to get additional information, an example is a potential collision with a ship given by what is called AIS data. To save going below every time I hear the alarm I would like to see the PC screnn and click on it using a Tablet, probably an Android Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I have looked hard for suitable software but most seems to assume both machines are on Internet. I would like to use a Bluetooth connection but could fit a wireless router to give a LAN with WiFi. Any suggestions as to what I could use please?

Step 1:

Download the PC version of Team Viewer utility and install it on your computer. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, make sure you install the application with administrator privileges.

The installation also allows you to run the application directly without the need to install the setup files on the computer, so make your choice.

Step 2:

The software allows only personal use for no cost, but if you plan to use it for a commercial purpose there is a cost attached. You can select personal /non-commercial use in the succeeding setup screen.
