I believe the only option you have when using your Ipad is teamviewer (or some other tool like logmein). You can install the application on your W8 machine. When using teamviewer make sure to install the service version.

Install the teamviewer client on your IPAD, insert the correct information that teamviewer on your windows 8 machine gives you voila, your good to go.

VNC might be an option (don't know if there's an iPAD version.

If you upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro, you can enable RDP and connect over your local network through the RDP client that's available for iPAD (and there are RDP clients for pretty much every system).
