    Hi Chris...

    Thank you, that was helpful...

    I phoned Apple and they said that most likely there's an app for it...

    …saw my ipad on the Home Page apps…

    …and Yes, there is some free ones and ones you pay for…maybe more features.

    All help appreciated and thank you…

    Best.

    Hi Paul, if you can explain the reason you want to connect, i.e for watching films, streaming music etc. I may have a few solutions

    Well the use of Dropbox will certainly help for 80% of your problems, I'm off to google a solution for the rest.
    I seem to remember an app called LogMeIn.....I'm trying to find a link

    Back in a tick.

    Here we go, possibly not the cheapest option but it is an option

    Paul, there is a free app called Splashtop Streamer that I use to access my windows laptop. I can run anything on it from my Ipad remotely.
