I was looking into controlling a computer from an ipad after reading about it. Found a site directing me to download vpn client app to ipad and to use a vpn server on the computer (if xp or earlier since it read that win 7 has built in vpn server). I understand this concept for going over the internet to control it, but I am wanting to do it from another room, using the wireless home network. So first question is can you do vpn over the same network. Secondly, how else might one do this?
