    Remote desktop

    I would like to remote desktop into my work Mac pro via my ipad 2 wifi/3G. I have found some reviews on remoting within the same wireless network, but not from home, etc...

    Does anyone know of a good app to do this? Would it work over 3G? Thank you very much!!

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Teamviewer works fairly straight forward. You install the free counterpart on your Mac, enter and save the credentials on your iPad and then access your Mac remotely. No special setup required.

    The speed isn't great over 3g, but it works.

    I would also like to have a VPN capability but wishful thinking?

    I've been using the Remoter VNC app and it works flawlessly (virtual touch pad, keyboard, etc.).

    I just downloaded and installed Teamviewer and started using it today. The setup was easy and now I can control my PC/Mac with my iPhone. The speed isn't great when viewing video but it's usable. Its all free for personal use and includes file transfers, which logmein charges for.

    GoToMyPc is also a good alternative and it's free.

    The app is free but not the service....quite expensive actually. It is an enterprise solution, I'm just looking for something easy and inexpensive.

    Would like to hear feedback on if it's worth it however. Thanks!

    Just bought Remoter VNC...I think it's 99 cents right now. I haven't checked out any of the options yet.
