Is this not a good idea?
This is a discussion on Do you leave Splashtop running all the time? within the iPad General Discussions forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Is this not a good idea?...
I have it on always. I leave my computer on all the time..that way I can always log in.
I actually leave my iPad on splashtop all day while at work with a BT keyboard...its basically like having a MacPad.....god I hope that comes out soon!!
So you take your iPad to work and access your desktop from home? Am I understanding that? I thought we could only use Splashtop at home?
I am confused and I have the headache from hell so please don't be an ass.
LOL! I am so kidding! Couldn't resist.
I have a 3Mb/sec upload rate at home and 20Mb/sec download at work...it is really fast. Like fast enough that I've been playing Tales of Monkey Island lately on my iPad on my desktop at work when I'm done!
To use it outside of your local network you have to forward ports 6783-6785 on your router then go into Splastop and add a new connection, type in your home IP address (an easy way to get it is to log in to gmail, its at the bottom of the page....if you aren't home and need it you can leave it logged in at home and go to the check connections tab and find it in there) It will log in just like at home. If your connections are fast enough it will be like you are at home
