Hello everyone !
Don't know if I'm in the forum to post my question, please tell me then where to go
I'm trying to connect to my Macbook with my iPad using a remote application but I haven't succeeded in doing so. I need help I'm a novice with OSX. My System is OSX Snow Leopard, iPad with 64 go and No 3G. Can someone help me so I can connect to my Macbook with my iPad or vice a versa if possible


Thank you!

    I'm not 100% sure what you're asking, but as far as I know, there are no ways to wirelessly sync your iPad to your MacBook. There is no way to place the iPad in a disk mode to see it's contents, though you can see it on a network, though again, you can look at files.

    The only way to connect your iPad with your MacBook is with the USB cable.

    If I'm not quite understanding your question, clarify what you want to do, and we can help you out.

    Hello!

    I think I didn't explain my problem well. I downloaded and Apps, iRemote for my iPad. With iRemote your suppose to be able to manipulate your workstation or Notebook. You must install on your PC or Notebook the host application Remote PC Suite. You need to know your IP address and port, the host application tells you your IP address but I'm not sure of the port I use.
    I haven't succeeded in establishing connection to my Notebook I always get a error message on my iPad that the connection to the host as failed. I guess I didn't setup things the right way?

    Can someone tell me how to find my port. When establishing connection you need 2 things like I said, IP address and Port and I don' t know where to look to see the port I'm using.

    Thank you for your help everyone!

    Not sure how to help you...but you may want to contact the App developer for some help.

    Unfortunately, you're going to have to contact the developer of the App. You need a port open for your iPad and laptop to see each other. Also, if they're both on the same LAN, it might work, because it's trying to open a port, when it doesn't need one. In addition, you have to use different IP addresses on a local network than when if one or the other is outside.

    In general, you need to use the shared IP address. BUT, if you have an ISP that uses a dynamic IP address, you're going to have a hard time doing this. There are ways around this, but again, you need to check with the developer.

    Ports are open and closed on your router. So you'll need to access there.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to do, but it's not going to be easy.

    I don't have iRemote but I use VNC Lite for the same purpose. It works great, it is easy to set up, and it is free. Give it a shot!

    You need to go to the iRemote website and download a program on your Mac so that it can automatically find it.
