If you are not aware, pcDuino adds support of Ethernet over USB from version 20131127. This feature allows pcDuino to be connected to a PC through USB OTG, and users can VNC to pcDuino through USB OTG instead of Ethernet connection.
We have a laptop with Windows 7, and don’t have HDMI monitor and keyboard/mouse for pcDuino, so we would need to VNC to pcDuino.
