How does one use a VPN on iPad to connect to their computer(running Windows XP or Vista) and access/edit documents on the Windows computer? The likelihood of doing this is remote, but the user needs this facility in case something needs to be done at some point. Looked at http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1424 and Apple iPad Tablet: How to Setup iPad VPN I know another option is VNC and the free Mocha VNC lite is an app which can aid you to connect to a Windows running computer. There also might be apps like logmein or gotomypc, but which are the commonly used ones? 1. Which(out of VPN or VNC) is better to use a iPad to connect to their computer(running Windows)? 2. Are there free apps for VPN? 3. The user also wants to be able to write on it using the stylus pen(as if he was writing on a paper), then save his notes, use an application to convert his handwritten notes to regular text(which then can be edited, searched for terms etc). I know you can write using a BoxWave Capacitive iPad Stylus but which app can do proper recognition of cursive hand writing. I know myscript and ritescript are two apps. But. are there other apps which are suited for this task?
