    In terms of power use I still stick with iTeleport. It can be off the local network through their connection program on the PC. All you need other wise is a VNC server. The interface itself is smooth and highly responsive... Even if the network stability isn't. It has nots of extra controls for function and modifier keys.

    I use Splashtop to stream video and audio. Good for watching Hulu I the living room or in the kitchen. I have begun using everyAir to see if it will be the answer to the "flash" issue for at my work. EveryAir is still in its youth and under development.

    Apologize in advance as I did NOT read entire thread - but maybe someone has a quick answer - do and of these apps allow or prohibit the use of firm specific proprietary software? I use software on my office computer that only people at my firm have access to and can use - I couldn’t even get it on my home computer if I wanted to. Would you be able to access ANYTHING on the computer you were remoting into? Thanks you in advance for your answer/guidance.

    teamViewer help

    I have downloaded TV app to my iPad2 and installed TV on my iMac. I have connected from iPad to iMac, but the problem was that I had to read the partner's ID and password on iMac first and to type it into the iPad to get connected. I want to access my iMac remotely from my iPad when I am away. What kind of setup should I do on the iMac to enable that?
    Sounds like a stupid question even when I read it, sorry

    Thanks for your help

    Adam, it is possible for software developers to prevent an application from running when a computer is being controlled remotely, but it's not common. We have a building monitoring security system and it will not run if you connect to the computer it is installed on via Remote Desktop protocol or VNC. That is the only application I've encountered that would not work.

    I use Jump Desktop to control my office pc (and about 30 different servers) via a VPN connection to my office network. I've run everything from Backup Exec and MSWord to AutoCAD in that way.

    I was wondering if anyone knows if the Teamviewer app can keep the same ID and password. I'd like to make it something easy but so far I have had to use the ones that it sent me and it changed it once. thanks

    On the app look in " partners" at the bottom of the startup page. Mine saved there.
