    I'm hoping somebody can help me here.

    I purchased and installed Desktop Connect for the iPad. I installed the PC software also (Vista 64bit), and UltraVNC.

    I can connect no problem using EasyConnect, however, I can only view whatever happens to be on my desktop screen at the time. I can't actually click anything through the iPad.

    Am I missing something very obvious here?

    By the way, in case anyone suggests it, I have the 'disable inputs' boxes unticked in the VNC admin properties.

    Do you have the view only password set as the same as your primary password?

    if so it will log into the view only.

    I have been fighting with Desktop Connect all day just to get connected and was able to connect a time or two but had the same isue only saw what was on the screen with no control.

    The strange thing that I notice about the two paswords is that the deafault is desktop but the two passwords have one more dot then desktop would be. I change them back to desktop and they always seeem to change back to the extra dot when I go back and look. I will try and change the view onlty PW to a longer word and see if that helps if I can even get connected again.

    I use Teamviewer. Never once had a problem. Even while running heavily interactive i/o intensive apps. And my pc is a little acer netbook. Works great

    Typing this on my iPAD using TeamViewer in win7's message reply box.
    It's a free app for personal use.
