If no local area network is available or for greater response time you can also use ADB. To use ADB the port needs to be forwarded to the device.
adb forward tcp:8480 tcp:8480
Then connect to http://127.0.0.1:8480 in your browser.
1. Press the Run button on the device so it displays the status of Waiting.
2. Enter the IP address and port into your web browser, Ie. http://xx.xx.xx.xx:8480
3. The status will change to Connected and you can see your Android screen on your desktop
