    Question Is IPAD the one

    I am looking for a tablet device that has mobile internet access. I need to be able to remote desktop over the internet to a window 7 machine. I also need to be able to download windows files from the internet then transfer the files to different PC's and servers without having to install software on them all to connect to the IPAD.

    Can this be done easily

    iPad - mobile Internet access - yes, WiFi and 3G
    Remote Desktop - no problem, many apps for this - either from a local network or over the Internet. I access my Windows PC at home behind an ADSL router and firewall from the US using my iPad on 3G. (GoToMyPC app - but there are many others)
    Download files from the Internet - GoodReader, as well as many other apps - or transfer indirectly via cloud storage, such as Apple's MobileMe iDisk.

    I'm sure you'll gets lots of advice - perhaps even too much - from members over the next few hours...

    ^^^^^^^^ This and more ^^^^^^^^^

    I agree with Tim on this along with the addition of a Dropbox account.
    I use LogMeIn and TeamViewerPro HD. I have done what you are describing from both an office on one side of the US back to computers on the other side (using 3G) as well as cruising at 35,000 ft on a commercial flight (obviously with GoGo Inflight, not 3G).

    I guess it depends on your definition of easy, but I find it quite easy.

    The iPad may well be the most perfect electronic gadget currently on the market. (Yes, that includes the Droid Tablets)
    And yes, if you take it from my hands I will stop breathing.

    Hi Tim
    Thanks for the prompt reply. I would like to drill down on the Download files from the internet issue. I have read about GoodReader and think I have a basic understanding of its use. My next question is how do I connect the ipad to the windows PC ( is there a cable ? ) and how does the PC see/display the IPAD ( does it see it as an external Hard Drive ? ) My main concern here is I do not want to have to install software onto every PC I connect my IPAD to. This process would be much simpler if I could move the file from my IPAD to a standard USB drive.

    In GoodReader - which can transfer files either by USB (cable supplied as standard with the iPad) or WiFi - you select, say, WiFi transfer. GoodReader then displays the iPad's IP number - say 192.168.1.108:8008 or whatever. You then open up a web browser on the PC and type in that IP address. GoodReader establishes a simple web interface. You can browse on your PC to find a file (or files) and then upload them to the iPad or in the reverse direction. In GoodReader you can organise the files in any way you choose - files and folders, nested to any depth etc.

    Then, you can open those files in any compatible application on the iPad.

    Let me know if you want any further details..

    Hi Richard
    You mention TeamViewerPro HD do you know if this will connect seamlessly to Teamviewer 5 full version for windows. I use Teamviewer extensively in my work

    Life doesn't work that way where a price of something in say Baltimore Maryland is the same exact price down to the cent as say Las Vegas,Nevada

    Hi Tim
    Once again thanks for the speedy and concise answer ( I have been trying to google this procedure for a while now ). Just to confirm, assuming I was trying to fix a lan driver issue on a windows pc (no internet connection) Would I be able to download the driver with the IPAD, connect the IPAD to the pc with a cable, and transfer the file to the pc using GoodReader I am not sure I quite understand the use of the IP address. Is this how the pc will be able to detect the IPAD in a web browser ? (I'm sure I have part of this backwards)

    Yes - OK - I see the problem you are hinting at. Yes - the issue of the IP address is, indeed, how the PC will be able to detect the iPad so there could indeed be a problem here if the PC doesn't have an IP address because of a LAN driver problem.

    I'm out of the office at the moment but I'll look into this when I get back. I'll disconnect my PC from all networks and see whether it's possible. I guess I'll have to manually establish an IP address for the PC because, without a connection to a router, it won't have an IP address when it's switched on. But I should be able to manually assign one to it for the purpose of this 'experiment' - sounds like fun and an excuse to get into the lab and out of the office.
