i need to remote into my XP box from my IPAD2.  Using RDP lite app, no matter what I do, the screen of the remote computer wont "fit" in my IPAD display, and I have constantly drag the screen around to make things fit.  Is there a way to remote to my XP box and have the display fit in my IPAD?

You have to limit the display within the tsclient prior to connecting to match the size of the ipad.

Which app are you using to RDP?

im using rdp-lite, a free app.  do you mean i have to make a change on the XP box?  The rdp-lite app only goes up to 1024 x 768 which isn't enough

No, The resolution is limited by your ipad2 and the rdp-lite app.

Prior to establishing a connection, check what resolution it will be using on the remote side and make sure to limit it to 1024x768 which will mean it will fill your Ipad2 screen and will not need to shift.

Alternatively, pinch in/out to zoom in/out rather than sliding the display one way or the other.
