Raspberry Pi is a very powerful device. One of the interesting and the most sought after applications of Pi is to remote control it. In the above video, I have discussed the methods to remote connect it. This blog post contains all the links and packages discussed in the video.

Virtual Network Computing(VNC) enables to establish remote connection to the Desktop environment of the Pi. You can use your laptop's screen to mirror Pi's screen. Also you can use your laptop's mouse and keyboard to control Pi.
