Today almost everyone belongs to IT
This is a discussion on Apps for people in IT within the iPad Apps forums, part of the iPad App Store category; Today almost everyone belongs to IT...
I realize this thread is 3 years old, but I loaded the latest Mocha VNC app (free version) on my iPad retina and had it up and communicating on my home LAN (Time Capsule) in about 20 minutes to screen share with my iMac. It took about a half a day to get it to work LTE through the Internet because I had to work through the alphabet soup in setting up the router, doing this for the first time. The next time it will probably take a whole 5 minutes. Works quite well!
The only problem I had was when entering a hardware address I forgot the last two 2-char entries and had to jump out of the config set up to go find them (yeah, I should have written it down!). Anyway, the app generated an error about the incomplete address, which I acknowledged (OK OK OK !!, I'll be right back!), but then upon return the keyboard no longer came up no matter what field I tried to modify. After fooling with that for about 20 minutes, I deleted the app and reloaded again. Not a big problem for me right now, but be aware of this bug because I can see in the future that reconfiguring after re-downloading will get annoying. I'll play with the free version for a little while and if it seems robust enough, I'll definitely buy the full blown version for the added functionality and convenience.
I'll deal with the new IP address issue on router boot-up later, but I'm just testing for now. I believe this is not an issue if used on my wifi LAN and I reserve local IP address to my devices hardware addresses.
Thanks for the tip, MikesToolz!
