Acces Mac from iPad
I have tried several applications like Desktop Connect, Splashtop etc. but without succes, so I will be grateful if someone can not only tell me the application(s) I need but also give me a detailed description of how to proceed. ( I am an amateur )I have iPad2 and MacPro with OS 7 ( Lion ).
On your MacPro, open up System Preferences > Sharing, then tick the item "Remote Management". Without this set ON you won't be able to connect with any tool. Personally I use iTap VNC which works great, but I am sure the others you tried should work, provided you make the necessary changes above.
You may also have to set the Options in the "Remote Management" screen. Click the Options button and check all the boxes just to make sure you can get it working. Then remove any options you do not want users to have.
Hope that helps.
You beat me to it, Leigh...
May also be worth looking at screens, it's more expensive that iTap but looks super easy to use, I'm planning on trying it in the next week or so.....
with splashtop, you need the splashtop streamer.

Thank you for your quick reply. As you suggested I downloaded iTap RDP. When I continued I got the message "The RDP host is not reachable". I hit "connect"and then I was told "failed to establish TCP connection", then I hit "Help" and on the following screen I could tap the icon for bookmarks in the menuline and to my surprise it worked . I could search for radio stations but there was no sound. I can understand I have made something wrong from the very beginning and hope
you have the patience to help me.
Try downloading splash top streamer for Mac then logging into it with your google account. Login on the splash top app also with the same account info. Whatever computers are linked to that account will automatically show up.
Here's a link to the streamer dl for Mac

Thank you for your mail,It was very useful, However I am now using screens
I'm in love with Jump desktop... Use it everyday... And setup is extremely easy... Uses your google account as verification and it connects you to any computer that has the freeware installed on... The app costs money,but it's cheap... The software for Macs and Pcs are both free.. :D
YOU ARE TEARIN ME APART, LISA!
Thank you for the info. It was very useful.I was not aware of the amount of software to be found on the net. I now use Screens
