    File sharing

    Is it possible to access files on my Mac mini from my iPad (or vice versa)? I presume it would have to be done by file sharing, or is there any other way.

    Teamviewer is a free remote control app that allows you to transfer files from your computer to your iPad ..

    I don't really want to transfer them, as I only want one copy. Otherwise they might not sync, or it's likely that I'll forget that I haven't synced them. So accessing my mac mini from the iPad would definitely be the best option, if it's possible.

    A 'remote desktop' app will allow you to see your computer on the iPad - I'm using Splashtop (Information HERE) w/ my Vista laptop & the iPad2 - other apps are available for this purpose, so try looking in the Apple App store - good luck!

    Yes I know, and thanks, but I don't want to copy them either. I want to control them all from one place IYKWIM. I've installed team player, and it's great - does just what I want. Just having problems because I can't find the setting to wake up the mac mini, when I try to connect. Have posted a new thread.
    And thanks for all your efforts everyone!
