Control A Mac Remotely Using Back To My Mac BTMM?

Is anyone successfully using their iPad to control a Mac remotely using Back to My Mac (BTMM) or a 3rd party app such as Logmein or VNC? If so I'd be keen to learn if the experience is as good as using a Macbook pro.

I'd be very suprised if BTMM is supported, but perhaps it is doable if a keyboard and / or a mouse is attached to the iPad?

To Remotely Control MacBook Pro?
I'm a teacher, and I would like to use my iPad as a full-function remote control for my MacBook Pro in the classroom.

The MacBook Pro would have a wired connection to the Internet (and VGA to a projector), and there is a wireless network in the building.

So: Is there an app for that?

Sync Remotely Possible?
I would like to purchase an iPad for my mother. This will be the first time she will experience personal computing and the Internet, so I would like to make the transition as smooth as possible.Because my mother is new to this environment, she does not have an existing computer that would have iTunes loaded. I do not live close to her and do not have anyone that can support her locally. Would it be possible to have iTunes in the cloud that the iPad could connect to and I could maintain? If this is not an option, could the iPad remotely connect to my computer and access iTunes that way? Would it also be possible to gain remote access to the iPad while she views the screen? That way I can show her how to use the device and provide remote support.

With my iPad, the emails can go onto the iPad fine, but my iCal, Contacts, ...etc. won't sync even if I ask MobileMe to sync everything. The only way is to connect the computer and the iPad and everything sync up right away. Pls tell me where to find info on this.

Accessing CRM Database Remotely
Hi, i have recently purchased an IPad mainly for videos, music, books etc but i have started to look at how i can use it for work. One of the things i am trying to do is to access our sales database via VPN when out of the office. I have used the VPN settings from my laptop that runs windows XP pro and it is connecting to a Windows SBS 2003 server, i can connect using these settings fine but that is about it. When i try and access the database via atomic browser (using the firefox 3 setting) it comes up with the error message 'couldn't find host' When i access it in the office using the wifi network it works fine. The CRM database is called Accpac and is not the latest edition. I was told by our support company i couldn't access it anywhere as is only compatible with IE but i have managed to in the office but nowhere else.

Wake & Access Remotely?
Hey everyone. Not sure if this is possible or not. When I am at home, I use NetAwake for wake-on-lan capabilities from iPad > PC. I have been using Splashtop Remote Desktop to access the PC.

This is great when I am on my network at home, but I was hoping for something that would allow me to wake my PC and access it when I am at work as well. I think logmein and iteleport would get the job done trying to access the machine, but what about any wake on lan functionality? I would prefer not to leave the PC running at all times if I dont have to.

I know Smugmug allows you to download pics to view offline on your iPad, but it doesn't work with the iPad Photo slideshow feature. I have a Smugmug and Mobileme account.

Spending a lot of time on the phone doing 'tech support', which is not easy when I don't own an iPad myself. Looking for an app that allows me to at least view the iPad screen remotely via pc/mac.

Data Plan - Remotely Activated
I have a 3G ipad and generally have little use for the 3G service, so I don?t keep it turned on every month (have WIFI everywhere I use it). Now, let?s say that I loose my ipad (or it?s stolen) in a month I don?t have the 3G data plan turned on. Of course, I?d want to track it with ?find my ipad? on mobileme. We know that the ipad needs a data connection to be found (and perhaps someone will have it on a WIFI network, but maybe not), so the question:If I have my Ipad?s sim card number, or even my account information with ATT from past months, can the ipad data service be turned back ON by calling ATT, and not having access to the ipad itself?

View Windows 7 Desktop Remotely From An Ipad
I often need access to previous sent/received emails and documents which makes it a pain to use my Blackberry as the screen/viewing is so small. Enter the idea of an ipad. Great for emailing on a 3G connection and you can actually see what you're typing and documents.

However, seeing historical emails is the problem. I currently use a desktop at home with Windows 7 64 bit. My email is on Outlook. Is there any method by which I can view my desktop remotely from an ipad and so view my emails, docs etc.

IPad 1 No Longer Connects Remotely To IMac?
I got Splashetop Remote Desktop for the iPad the other day and it worked great for a few minutes but then it simply stopped working. It would no longer connect to my iMac remotely. But the worst part of it is now none of the remote apps on my iPad are working either. I'm talking about apps like Air Video, Remote HD, Rowmote, and Mobile Mouse. None of these apps will connect to my Mac anymore when they worked perfectly before. Same goes for the Apple Remote App with home sharing turned on. Interestingly, the same apps still all work perfectly on my iPod Touch (minus Splashtop Remote Desktop) which I don't have for the iPod Touch).

Clearly Splashstop Remote did something to the connection between the iMac and the iPad because everything was working before I tried it for the first time.

I've erased Splashetop Remote from the iPad and uninstalled its server application from the iMac. I even did a full reset of the iPad followed by a restore from a few days ago. Still nothing. Wifi on the iPad has been working fine the entire time as I can surf the web, check email, Twitter, etc... So it's just remote access apps tat won't work anymore even though essentially the same apps on my iPod Touch still do work. Firewall is off and I don't use antivirus software.

It might help to add that all the remote apps on the iPad keep timing out. Also, occasionally Rowmote quickly flashes some sort of "GFL Socker Error" message. It flashes so fast it's impossible to read it so the first part may be wrong. I definitely saw the words Socket and Error though. It's really the only thing I have to go on.

Remotely Adding Pictures,videos To IPad 2?
the situation is, my father just called and told me he has got a brand new Ipad 2. We are 4 brothers and sisters living all four as expatriates in other countries, and I would like to know, if by using his name and password (I guess every Ipad user has a name and password.. I dont have myself any apple product....yet) we could be able to upload directly pictures and videos of us into his Ipad. I know he has got a 3G flat rate contract, so I suppose he will sync quite often.Him being a total catastrophe with gadgets, it would be perfect if us four children could use Itunes or other software, to update the photo galleries on his Ipad.
