    I know it sucks to pay again..but give RealVNC a try...you have to know the ip address you are logging in to (i use iTeleport to get it) but its way faster and smoother, especially when on a local network.

    How is the refresh rate on LogMeIn? Obviously better on the same local Lan, but over 3G?

    That's a cool tip, but not what I'm looking for. I dont need to go back and forth between Windows and the iPad, I just need to be able to select a few lines of text from a page (double-tap just does 1 word), then copy and paste them into another app on Windows. I cant figure out how to select a section of text.

    I tryed realVNC and it is amazing in desktop controlling! Thank you for the good advice.
    The App work very well except for video control. I explain the problem: when I use realVNC viewer, from iPad, to reproduce a video on server the control on iPad looks really slow and after some minutes it disconnect from server.
    Some ideas?

    Server has Win7 32 bit with aero disable.

    I dont know if any of the remote desktop/vnc apps will be able to allow you to watch videos on a remote machine. You will need a VERY fast connection for that. That's a lot of data to have to move from one machine to the other.

    I agree. It would be nice for a app to be developed to connect to MS Media center.....

    Thanks for the reply, I hope there will be a possibility to do what I want. I know it's impossible to see smooth video remotely on iPad, but I hope that it will be possible to control video, locally playing on server, remotely from iPad.

    If RealVNC doesn't disconnect every few minutes it was a good solution, not perfect but almost good. For example "Remote HD" works better in video control, but is very bad in desktop menagemet (makeing playlist of music/ video, browsing hard drive, web browsing..).
    I am talking to RealVNC support to find a solution to my disconnection problem, let's see if there will be one..

    How do these remote desktop aps work for playing flash videos? What I want to do is connect to my PC, start a web browser on the pc and use it to view flash videos on my iPad.

    Very poor. Remote desktop of any kind has never performed well for video. And not going to get the audio out of most apps.

    Is there a specific site your trying to view?

    I confirm, with all the remote desktop apps that exist today (for iPad or windows PC, and also with wired LAN) you cannot obtain a fluid video reproducing in your iPad from remote. Best you can do is about 10-15 fps.
    There is an app that promise fluid remote video but is still in beta testing for iPad:
    Demo video about using multiple monitors with MaxiVista

    I wait for this app :P
