    Can those of you using Logmein do a test or tell me if you can select text on the remote machine with the iPad client? It says you can move the mouse, so that makes me somewhat hopeful. The current RDP software I'm using does everything I need except this one thing. I dont want to pay $30 for something that gets me nothing. If Logmein will do it all, it would be worth the $30.

    Working for a major public corporation I had to go with iTap RDP as it supports all the high end security protocols. It is pretty slow but useful. Cost like $12... It does work with XP Pro (which Desktop Connect /lite) does not and can work through a secure access tag and Novell. Not my first choice due to speed but it does the job.

    Dropbox is great, but not a remote control app.

    LogMeIn or Jump?

    So I am researching remote desktop clients. I have narrowed my search down LogMeIn or Jump for my iPad. This is what I am looking to accomplish:

    Log in to (2) PC's, 1 running XP Pro, 1 running Windows 7, 64 bit
    Log in to my office server running MS Small Business Server 2003
    Transfer select files to & from the iPad

    Sorry to make everyone's decision harder but I just tried out the newly released TeamViewer HD Free and it is very impressive. Definitely worth a look, especially at this price point, assuming non-commercial use.

    I've tried a few and I think I'll move over to it. I really don't like having to install a program on the computer (would rather it work with Remote Desktop) but it seems worth it with this.

    I'm still deciding on which one to use.

    Is there one that allows you to use change between using the screen as touch screen to touch pad? So you can touch what you want or change it too a large touchpad?

    I already have Teamviewer installed on my computers, but I would like to be able to pick how to control so I can see what suits me better.

    Thanks :)

    Another vote for Team Viewer HD. I use LogMeIn on my computers, but I was reluctant to spend the $29.99 for the LogMeIn Ignition app. Now I don't have to! Unlike some other apps, I didn't have to "tweak" any of my firewall, router or security software settings to get it to work.
