    Hi,
    At work we have a wifi system which you can access servers with films/pics etc.
    Can I access these servers with my ipad to look at films pics etc.?

    I imagine as long as you have the password to access the system you can use your IPad to view anything you could do with a computer.

    You may need an app that allows you to connect to your work network via a desktop already connected to the network or VPN access to your work network.

    If you know the movie's URL, OPlayerHD Lite (free) will stream it directly to your iPad from anywhere on the Internet. FTP Client Pro (99 cents) works like any other FTP client with a built in viewer, but the entire file must be downloaded before viewing. There may be other solutions that allow browsing to locate media files and streaming without downloading first.
