I am looking for a way to access my Ubuntu box from my android phone. In particular to change the volume.

I am running Ubuntu 12.10 LTS and Android 4.2.2 I have super user access to the computer. I'm not so sure about the phone. Its pretty much out of the box.

Is this possible?

What have you tried? What version of Android? What version of Ubuntu? Are you a Super User on either one? – Canadian Luke Sep 2 '13 at 21:11
"Is this possible?" It probably is, but we'd really like more details on your setup. You are very unlikely to get an answer this way. Please read How to Ask and edit your question. – user 99572 is fine Sep 2 '13 at 21:16

Would something like this help?… – user 99572 is fine Sep 2 '13 at 21:35

With a remote control app, like TeamViewer, you can do this and more.
