I am wrestling with an iPad that was given to me as a gift. All my computers at home run Linux, and I would like to, at the very least, copy files from one of my Linux boxes to the iPad for viewing photos/pdf files/videos. I can't use iTunes, but I have found a program that runs on linux that will emulate an iTunes server. The problem is that it will only work with an iPad that is directly connected to the linux box. I would like to use something like this over my Wifi connection.
So, any ideas on what it would take to b able to fire up my iPad, wirelessly connect to my linux server, and transfer files to the iPad to view later?
