    Here is my scenario, I hope this isn't to much of a smart ass answer: I have 16 sales people and one CEO who use iPads for our company. They are located in Kansas, Texas, and all of California. It isn't economical for me to hop on a plane and travel to Kansas or Texas or Northern California when one of the iPads has an issue.

    When my bosses iPad has an easy to fix issue at 7am on a Saturday I'd like to do it remotely in my pajamas instead getting dressed and driving to his house because he can't describe the problem over the phone.

    I hope this helps to describe scenario's where a Systems Administrator might need to remote in and control an iPad.

    I would like to remotely control my iPod while watching Netflix on my big screen TV. Otherwise I would have to use a very long HDMI cable btwn the two.

    If you still need this capability, there is LogMeIn Rescue.

    https:// secure.logmeinrescue.com/HelpDesk/MobileSupport.aspx?wt.ac=RescueHomepage-Mobile

    It's not cheap, but is designed specifically for the remote support scenario.

    Remote support of an iPad user

    I too am astonished how often questions re "How can I do blah" get anwsered by "Why would you want to do that" ?

    I have an 81yo somewhat hard of hearing and technically challenged father, whom I've given an ipad to try and help us keep in touch. I desparately want to remote support him. I've had many long difficult phone calls trying to get him to do things that we are just not 'connecting' on.

    My entire professional life is remote supporting users and servers, and I have remote tools for other smartphones/pads (eg Windows Mobiles , Android and Blackberry via Logmein etc. )

    The lack of such tools in iPhones/iPads is a major stumbling block. And I dont want to start jailbreaking stuff for remote users.

    Replicate for iPad and Pro, seem complex for the basic function, but are also limited to supporting an iPad(or iPhone) in the SAME LOCAL WIFI.. No 3G or general internet connections.

    This is a major bummer and makes them useless for my purpose (and $6 down the drain for trying one).

    The problem seems to be the vice like grip Apple have on the device and apps and their judgement that we cant have such apps cause we dont need them or they are too high a security risk.. Nanny State supreme..

    rgds .. Peter

    If you have a classroom of children and you want to be able to see what each iPad is doing.
    If you have a older adult and need to remote control from the internet to assist them.
