Some apps require connecting to/from computer using ip address (such as uploading files to iPad through Internet Explorer of ftp). At home this all works perfectly but at work I have problems. Somewhere I read that in some work environments a person needs to create an ad hoc connection. I did that. The internet works fine and my trackpad (on iPad) works fine, but I cannot connect from Internet Explorer using the 192.***.***.***:8080 address in either direct connection to the work wifi or the ad hoc wifi. When connecting to the regular work wifi I noticed that the computers on there have an address like 192.***.1.*** but on my iPad the address is 192.***.0.***. Does the 1 and 0 make a difference? I would think it would. I tried manually setting a static ip using the work ip configuration but that didn't work. Most of it is fairly self explanatory but I didn't know what to put in the Search Domains so I left that blank. Was that a problem? Also, should the HTTP Proxy be set up? I am using Windows 7.
