    Getting files to and fro is no big deal, there are loads of ways todo it but always remember these were designed to be personal media devices, networking and filesharing were not a primary design function.
    You load them up with stuff and take it with you... anything you forgot you can get from the web.
    A PC however it certainly is not!
    I rarely leave home without my iPad, but the netbook always gets slipped into the bag when there is a proper job to do!
    You cant run BackTrack on an iPad (mores the pity) and theres too many packets out there that need sniffing.....

    Guess you might know.. it used to be called a mini-hub, but are there any cheap and dinky little gadgets you could insert between anything and a GB netpoint that will just mirror the traffic to a port for netbook/laptop/IDS/whatever i.e. save you fiddling with the switch? Or is there some mini-GB switch that will do it?

    It's not a computer, its on an app by app basis and as far as I know unless they have changed it there is no centrally accessable file system. Its an Apple product so its all under their lock and key, iOS5 is apparently better as they advertise that you can finally use it without a 'real computer' so if it takes his Jobsnesses fancy there may be better support for stuff like this in that if profitable for Apple.

    GoodReader is more than PDF reader. To be honest I was assuming video was made with the device and in the photo library.

    you can view documents, images, play music, pdf. and yes you can copy to and from your shared drives to the ipad. you can create folders. there was a few things it couldnt do that i found annoying especially on my head teachers i pad, as i installed one of the office products on there and there was no way to save a document typed in the product to the file browser folders. but that was back in November last year, so i would hope by now other products are working with file browser. I need to do some updates to file browser as im a little behind....

    would also suggest you read there site if your planning on getting file browser
    I quote: FileBrowser is able to connect to a wide variety of SMB file servers, but some are not compatible. Before purchasing FileBrowser we recommend that you try our free NetPortalLite app.

    I've also used this but it was a 3 way solution. 1 teache i know uses team viewer but leaves there laptop left on at work, the other teacher I know purchased ignition and does the same, however I'm not too keen to have these laptops left on at work and soon impero will control all machines in the school which will shut them down in the evening.
    The other thought is possibly installing HAP (home Access Plus) on a server at work and then using a browser to connect to it.
    but for me the simplicity of file browser is enough at this stage, whats a couple of quid....

    Hi all, I've just found this post that looks quite useful. We're looking at doing a similar thing in school:

    How To Wirelessly Access Network Shares from Your iOS Device - How-To Geek
