I'm trying to run my Kindle Paperwhite running as an external monitor using bits and pieces of information all over the place but I'm currently stuck once I get access to my device in PuTTY (ie get the Welcome to Kindle! message and the stuff below it).

According to a guide to use a Kindle DX as an external monitor,
( http://www.techhive.com/article/2595...html#tk.hp_new )
I'm meant to run the following commands:
[root@kindle root]# /etc/init.d/netwatchd stop
[root@kindle root]# /etc/init.d/powerd stop
[root@kindle root]# /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh 192.168.2.1:1 &

The first command returns:
-sh: /etc/init.d/netwatchd: not found

What am I supposed to be doing from here?
Ifpossible, I'll need every step of what I need to do given to me as I don't ave any experience with telnet, VNC or the like.

Some background information that may be of use:
I followed the steps for the Kindle Touch to setup the NDIS networking and the IPV4 addresses. ( http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...USB_Networking )

I'm running Windows 8 and TightVNC

Hovering my mouse over TightVNC in the system tray gives:
192.168.15.201, 192.168.1.8 (no auth!)

I have require VNC authentication turned off.
