iPad 2 & Terminal Server

Posted on 2011-05-02

We have a few users with iPads that would like to connect to the Terminal Servers.  There are three servers (load balanced) running Server 2008.  Windows based machines and Android phones can connect internally or externally from a wired or wireless connection using Remote Desktop or in the case of Android a RDP app.  I have attempted to use PocketCloud from WYSE and Remote Desktop-lite from MochaSoft, with no success.  Is there a specific app or combination of apps I need to be aware of to make this work on iOS devices?

    Some of the free apps don't wotk with Windows Server RDP or TS because of licence restrictions. I am using iTap RDP - it supports Remote Desktop with NLA.

    I've tried several RDP apps and the best one so far is iTap RDP.  It's also a universal app.for the iphone/ipad.
