    Is there such a thing? I have not found one yet that is the same as on the PC. I am able to access my company server through the Internet on my PC this way but have not found a way to do it with the iPad yet. Has anyone had any success doing this.
    Thanks

    You can either use gotomypc, they have an awesome app for the iPad to connect to your work PC. It is not free thorough.

    Or for personal use you can use teamviewer, which is free for personal use

    I was looking all over last night bc needed to connect to my work computer which I do all the time on my laptop with Windows Remote Desktop tool but the computer was tied up and I knew I'd need it for an extended period of time. My google search to find an answer led me here which led me to iTap RPD app and it worked as close to perfectly as you could expect using an iPad for remote desktop connection. It already was worth the $9.99 cost and I will need to use it quite often moving forward.

    The quick tutorial was helpful and their full manual was good for learning as you go. I was not expecting to have a great experience bc I had to connect to a pretty intricate software we use at my law firm, but I needed to get work on a file done so I was willing to put up with whatever I had to but this was a pleasant surprise. I don't know if it works universally across all platforms but all I had to do was type in the IP Address of my work comp and done.

    Hope that helps bc the person I know it was a lifesaver for me and I read it in a post like this.

    I installed VNC Server edition (free) on my PC and on my iPad and iPhone I use Remoter VNC from the app store to connect. Works great!

    I second iTap RDP. I have been using it for over a year. I can control my XP box and my Windows Home Server without a problem. The other great thing is that the developers make updates every few months.

    You might want to look at Wyse Pocketcloud. I've been testing it, accessing a Windows server on our work network. So far, it looks pretty good.

    I use Jump Desktop. No need for VPN, just install the client software on any machine you want to connect to. It has the choice of either RDP or VNC. If you go the RDP route, you can watch video with sound on your iPad.

    Please I need a RDP app to connect to the office server 2003, But I can not install anything in the Server. So it must be like Windows RDP connection to connect by IP adress.
    Thank you in advance.

    I love Pocketcloud's options to access files on PC but was told to use my google account to set it up. I am always wary of inputting my google password on third party apps. How safe is this?

    I've been using Splashtop and it works really well. I have been able to keep my laptop in the office and just use my iPad at home. It has some great features like mouse control (via the iPad touchscreen) and support for external keyboards. With this combo, I can work with MS Office apps almost as good as a regular desktop. You need to install the client on your laptop and leave your laptop on. Then run the app on your iPad.

    I love Splashtop too. I find it streams movies from the desktop PC really well too.

    I use iSSH to connect to remote terminal (SSH) and graphical (VNC) machines. VNC is built in to macs (screen sharing) and can be installed on PCs.

    I haven't had the need to use RDP, so if you need that, I can't help too much.

    Also, a colleague of mine uses the Logmein app and is happy with it. It's easy to use and set up.

    Splashtop is the best. I use it everytime i wanna present my powerpoint. And i enjoyed using it. Just, i have to keep my laptop on to make sure the connection is connected. Hope the splashtop could do better, rather than let the laptop keep alive. :)
