    ipad file sharing remotely
    Hi everyone,

    I have been working on this for a while:

    I have ipad and macbook pro. I have bought File browser, Air sharing HD to try this, but still not succeeded.

    I want to have remote access to my documents on my laptop from my ipad at work using their wireless network remotely. I need to view docs, and make changes then save them on a file which is shared. I have tried SSH and port forwarding, but still can't do it.

    Is it even possible?

    I have used drop-box which is fine, but there must be a way in this day and age to transfer and change files from my laptop? I have VPN and can get to control my computer remotely using port fowarding but, why can't I do this.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Dropbox should do the job just fine, all you need on the iPad end is a program such as GoodReader that will let you make changes and re-upload.
