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
QUOTE Thanks

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.
