Is it possible to use a remote desktop viewer on NIOS Linux

Hello ,  

I am having a project where I need to take control of a pc or a smart phone which has a VNC server using FPGA so I need to run a client from the FPGA side . Is this possible ? 

My kit is the de2-115 .It has USB controller chip and Ethernet connections .

Well, you can run Linux on NIOS on that board. 

So you might be able to run a VNC client too.

Is there a way to know the capabilities or features of NIOS Linux and how far can it go ?

How far in what direction ?  

 

It can run any Linux program (including any graphic stuff), so anything goes.  

 

Any I/O hardware (including graphics) can be created in VHDL code and be accessed by appropriately done Linux drivers, so anything goes, but it might be a lot of work.  

 

Software performance is not very fast, so you are limited.
