If we want to proceed with the software installation, we grab our Android phone.
From here, we proceed to download the free LinConnect Alpha for Linux app: for everything to go in the right direction it is necessary that the version of Android installed on our device is greater than 4.0.
After this phase, we just have to install the server and move, therefore, on our PC.
